Paris Bleus

Yesterday there were blue skies in Paris...
And cobalt French blue was out in force...
As well as mufflers, sweaters, gloves and even hats! Brrrrrrrrrr
Even the wall decor in the Metro was carrying blue bags....
More sacs bleus de Stephane Verdino in the Marais...
Toujour les voitures bleus en Paris...
Christian says this is an old symbol of Paris...
Why a Viking ship..?
Mens skin stuff in bleu...
Les Jeans bleu are sooooo French!
So many boutique bleus in Paris...
Et bien sur les portes en bleus...
Knock! Knock!
Oh Please let us in to see all your blue things, Parisiens...
Jean-Paul Hevin always has blue with his chocolat...miam maim
At the Salon Professional de Chocolat there were complimentary blue and yellow bags of all kinds...
Don't we need a bit more complimentary colors?
Say some "orange" tarts from a boulangerie on rue des Martyrs (pronounced roo day Mar-TEAR). Abricot, pomme, figue...MIAM!!!!
Some
BONJOUR PARIS BLEUS!!!

  2. Nice blue post but today Paris is cloudy so you've now to find grey things. Not so difficult I think. Some "petite robe noire".
    Enjoy your day and be careful.

    Blue
    bleu
    blau
    true blue
    feelin' blue
    blue skies thinking
    deep blue
    out of the blue
    a bolt from the blue
    Once in a blue moon
    Talk until you are blue in the face
    Keep the blues away
    Go off into the blue
    Something happens out of the blue
    Blue Boy
    Blue Beard!

    Blue is also my favorite color.
    Once I was giving a WC demo, and mixed French Ultra Marine with its' compliment, Burnt Sienna, into a granulated wash.
    One of the students told me, years later, it was one of the most sensual moments she'd had! LOVE your paintings, Carol, of those mixtures.

    Blue jeans:

    Mais NON!

    Denim = de Niems from serge de Niems dyed with indigo from the Med.

    "jeans" derive from Genoa, Italy.

    that's what you get for allowing a librarian on the list --

  29. All true blue?! Those might made you feel blue? Orange tarts will really do the trick. Thanks for sharing. They might be all blue but I love them all. By the way, I found a fantastic Paris adventure that might interest you too. Thanks and have a wonderful day!
