Blue is a primary color which lies between violet and green on the spectrum of light. “The Blues” can describe a state of mind. Feeling blue can refer to being melancholic and depressed. Conversely, blue is known to calm the mind and body. The color blue can slow human metabolism and can produce a meditative effect. In nature, blue is reflected in the sky, water, earth, and fire. It is associated with open spaces, intuition, imagination and inspiration.“The Blues describes music; such as rhythm and blues, bluegrass and jazz. Blue is associated with ideology like the democrats and blue states. “Blue has no dimension, it is beyond dimensions.” - Yves Klein
