Blue might be one of the most misunderstood colors of all time.
When we think of blue, our ideas are usually tarnished by sadness. After all, Picasso’s “Blue Period” from 1901-1904 is characterized by cold, bleak, and monochromatic aesthetics. These Blue Period paintings reflect poverty, instability, frailty, and begging. Pretty bleak, right?
When artists are sad, they sing the blues. A period of depression might be referred to as “feeling the blues.”
Considering that blue is the color most often associated with sadness, it follows that you wouldn’t want to decorate your home with shades of blue.
In reality, however, blue is far more complicated and dimensional. It’s a color of contradiction. Indeed, just as blue connotes sadness, it also relates to optimism and “blue skies ahead.” Water, a beacon of life and movement, is blue. As the only primary color on the “cold” end of the color spectrum, blue is so interesting that we could speak about it until we’re blue in the face.

Coastal Beach Name Art
The ocean is perhaps nature’s most iconic use of blue. It’s not just one shade of blue, though. Rather, waves rolling toward the coastline have a lighter shade of blue, whereas a deep body of water has a dark, cerulean quality. Maybe it’s our love of fishing at Personal-Prints, but there’s just something special about the water to us.
We wanted to capture the beauty and mystical quality of the ocean in our Coastal Beach Name Artpersonalized canvas print. You can feature a first or last name of your choosing, and each letter is comprised of ocean-related images such as lighthouses, docks, and starfish.
Ski and Snowboard Name Art
On a picturesque day in the mountains, the slopes are blanketed in white snow with a bluebird sky above. Our Ski Letter Name Artand Snowboard Letter Name Art prints portray the blue of a beautiful day carving turns through the snow.
As with any of our personalized name art prints, you can choose whatever name you want to feature. Images of tall peaks, trail signs, and ski equipment will make each letter.
