Today is day five of Anna Carson's Project Blue. I'm was dredging around in my imagination for something to do... and came up with the following odd assortment for day five.
I think this little book is kind of pretty and has lots of nice blue to offer.
And then I thought "my eyes are blue. I wonder if I could get a picture of my eyes." Not as easy as you might think - at least not for me - not without looking kind of cranky or cross-eyed or frowny. Not sharing my face, though I did accidentally get one with most of my face in it. My niece Diana likes it, but...
I count the "portrait" below to be one of my "life treasures." It's not really blue, but it has blue in it, and I really like it. It's a picture of me drawn by a little girl I met about four years ago at a vegan Thanksgiving. It was a wonderful evening. I had dinner with her and her family a month or so later and she gave me this picture as a gift. It's very flattering and I'm very fond of it. Delfina is probably 9 or 10 now. She was six when she drew this. Pretty amazing, isn't it?
One more eye. I wish I had decent eyelashes. My sister's children all have magnificent eyelashes. My father had long, pale eyelashes. He was a red head. My mother had very short eyelashes. I got her length and his paleness (in the eyelashes, not the hair). Very irritating. I've got mad scientist eyebrows too. Sigh.
That's it for today. The eyes have it. (Sorry. I tried to resist that... I really did...)
