Blue painting collection by LA artist Emily Keating Snyder
 
 

Blue is the collection that’s been waiting to come out since these embroidered paintings were just a spark in my mind. For years I had this idea to create paintings out of one singular drop of color. In my art history days studying large panels made with only the smallest touch of lapis lazuli, I dreamed about what it would look (and feel) like to expand that touch into an entire world of color.

We find emotion in so many colors, but blue is an experience we can imagine literally diving into. Taking in an expanse of blue is like swimming in the sapphire ocean of the evening or a bright cerulean pool. And blue is also that weighty mood that can engulf us like water.
