I love the pretty colors of this one. I am always striving for that antique looking blue. I have a few old paintings in my home with that yellowed blue sky and it is hard to mix that color. This blue here is pretty close. I always try to paint in the colors that would match my house, because of course, these paintings are in my house. Hee hee I do love the pastel nature of this painting. I am getting very anxious for spring.
