Blue Christmas

I don't think I showed you blue boy after I fired him. I added the raindrops several of you suggested. I thought about adding some Swarovski crystals to embellish his eyes.

On closer inspection I like his eyes the way they are now, they show his character. The holidays make me a little blue but I am keeping my smile like blue boy.

I thought about a companion Blue Girl piece and I came across this video of Janis Joplin singing Little Girl Blue which I've never heard before.

Then I remembered the song Blue Christmas by Elvis. Thanks for reading and for all your comments.


  1. I got chills from head to toe listening to Little Girl Blue...oooh my...

  2. Hi Turquoisemoon, thanks, wasn't she something, really knew how to express the feelings.

  3. sweet, the crystals may have taken it from art to craft, not that there is anything wrong with that ;)

  4. How cool!! Happy holidays!!

  5. If that song is the inspiration for the piece little girl blue is going to be awesome.

  6. That was a new Joplin for me too. She was awesome. Thanks so much.

  7. Great piece and Joplin song! And I know that the holidays can be a stressful time. Sending you positive thoughts! Cheers!

  8. Seeing Janis Joplin perform like that really shows what a musician she was. She put her heart and soul into it. Well, it is that time of year again, and the blues certainly can nibble around the toes sometimes, but I hope that we all can capture some of the excitement and magic that can slip in at Christmas... sometimes when you least expect it to!
    Lots of love to you and to Gary, Happy Christmas and New Year, P. L. NS & G xx

  9. Hi Donna, thanks, I appreciate your input, a little too kitsch I think; yeah craft if handmade is good too.

    Hi Black Pumpkin, thanks so much.

    Hi Lori, thanks, well now I have much too much to measure up to. Ha.

    Hi Patti, thanks, yeah she was amazing, only the good die young, well not all for sure, depends on what age is young I guess. Ha.

    Hi Marguerite, thanks so much.

    Hi Peter, thanks, yeah, blues, keep off my toes, love to you and Laura too.
