Welcome to my regular Friday song/tune day, ladies and gentlemen, where I pick a piece of music that reflects my mood or the times, to share with you. I also have selected some blue and green themed photos for the Lens-Artists Photo Challenge. It seems appropriate to match the music to the photos. Let me know, is it a good match?
Blue and green are my absolute favourite colours. At least, I used to think that. These days my palette of favourite colours seems endless. However, like an old lover, I always come back to blue and green. I love them soft. I love them subtle.
In the early morning, soft blue adds highlights to dark bottle green.
Drab olive green is a prominent colour beyond the coastal fringe of Australia (at least on the east coast). You really have to be quite bright to stand out. A warm blue and a touch of red do the trick.
A pop of yellow provides accented lighting and shade provides tonal variation. Midnight blue complements the mid tone greens.*
Blue and green are the stars of the art in my house. However, since tiles feature in so many of the responses to the Lens-Artists challenge, I thought I should oblige with a mosaic. I had forgotten about it until the challenge triggered a memory. I had to find it and I did. I adapted a graphic (which was not my own original design) to create a piece of mosaic art for my walls. It is still waiting for me to find it a spot. It is much simpler than the mosaics I do now, but I do recall swearing a lot at the time I made it, so it can’t have been that easy.
It is all very serene, isn’t it? Hence the need for a serene song. I’ve chosen a piece composed by Ross Edwards, Voice Of The Rain. It is performed by shakuhachi master, Riley Lee, together with the Enigma Quartet. I am concerned that international readers may not be able to view this video. If not, may I suggest anything else by Riley Lee (eg. his Rainforest Reverie album which he has posted on Youtube). Good luck.
Life is complicated and distressing for many at the moment. Please take care, stay safe and be kind.
