A lovely shade for fall don't you think? A litte moody, a little mysterious, but plays well with others...Somewhere between a navy and royal, there are many, many variations of this beautiful color....
Indigo is a color named after the blue dye derived from the plant Indigofera tinctoria and it was Isaac Newton who first introduced indigo as a spectral color. In the mid-1660s, Newton bought a pair of prisms at a fair near Cambridge. He experimented by shining a narrow beam of light through the prism thus producing a rainbow-like band of colors, indigo or "blew" being one of them.
Despite my best attempt at being on task today, it seems that I didn't get nearly enough done. I had a list (which I have begun to make each night) of what I wanted to accomplish. I woke up early, did all my normal morning chores....kids, dogs, beds, laundry, etc. etc. etc. (tired already)
I had a few work details to finish up and then I was going to attempt to organize my home studio, but I kept getting distracted and the next thing I knew, it was time to get the kiddos and all the other stuff that goes along with my afternoon chores....kids, homework, dinner, wash uniforms and yucky sports stuff, etc. etc. etc.
