Here's my example of a favorite Blue picture, a Great Blue Heron I photo'd at a wildlife refuge, they are really majestic. It seemed to pose for me as we slowly drove by and I leaned out the window to take a quick shot. Pretty pleased with it as it's the best shot I've ever taken of one:

FFFUQ (Fartist Friday Frequently Unasked Questions):

What?
Fartist Fridays are weekly creativity contests that you can participate in with things you have on hand since many of us are stuck at home right now. If you have an idea for a future contest theme please post it here or send it along to Farkback.

Why? Show off your skills (or lack thereof!) while we practice socially distancing together, and be sure to vote for your favorite entries.

When? This contest is submitted on Thursdays with entry open immediately to TotalFarkers (membership has its privileges!), then it goes to the Main Page on Friday. Entries close around midnight Eastern on Sunday night. All times are approximate because we're all drunk.

How Does Voting Work? Please check the "Enable voting for this entry" box. If you forget, report it and ask, we'll do our best to turn it on for you. We consider an entry to be voting eligible by default so please mention if you want voting disabled on your post.

Check out past Fartiste contests by clicking on the Topic Tag, and check the weekly Fark NotNewsletter for info on that week's contest theme ahead of time. All skill levels encouraged (as you can see from mine!) and most importantly: We're all in this together so let's create some F'Arts together - Fark Arts, that is.

This drawing of a blue snake was partly inspired by the Medusa drawing I made for the Halloween Limerick Fartist Contest.

I normally draw portraits or geometric designs, so I wanted to do a different subject. After going through a list in my head, I decided that drawing a snake would be a nice challenge, plus I had drawn some for the aforementioned contest.

As to the blue. You rarely see blue snakes, but mainly green or brown or black, with some red or yellow. Blue snakes just stand out. That and I was running low on green colored pencils, but I had a number of blue ones.

Here are three quilts I finished this week. Lots of blues on front and back. I love quilting for charitable donations. Mostly it's meditative and therapeutic. All I have to do is not run the sewing needle over my fingers or spill my beer on a project.

Part of a project in illustrator from a couple years ago for an illustrated story. Stained glass is an important part of the story. I was really proud of using 3D features in illustrator to do the projected image.

I want to pick it up again, but I struggle with the writing /iteration sometimes. It's not my day job and another bigger project is sucking up my time.

Acrylic on canvas, 10" x 20"
Much of what I do is seascapes, where blue is a bit of a constant, but this is one of the bluest

It might not look blue but it mostly is. Back in my tech days I'd regularly have to clean up after artists trying to do weird stuff. I have no idea what this chick was trying to print on clear plastic film. It got jammed up with someone else's news feed I guess. By the time I got everything pulled out of the printer I decided to frame it. Maybe because Douglas Adams would have liked the bizarre 42 on top

Not much as art since I'm not much of an artist. But I took this because of the blue. It's from the top of the Zugspitze near the Austrian border. Or it could be in Austria near the German border. It's kitschy. Billowing clouds and clear sky. But it's so intense, I think, because of the altitude. I wanted nothing but sky but you can see a bit of handrail or roofline on the bottom left edge.

I like the Tick, and Rejected the short animation. I thought they would smash up well together. Surprised no one has done it before, at least to my knowledge.

This started life as a Piccadilly Circus Station map for a pal.
Since the station is 3D, I'd drawn a 3D-ish map for him, with
the entrance, exit and all the turns & escalators etc.  He was
shocked at how many crazy up-down-arounds he'd have to
do and remarked ''All those tubes looked like space worms!"
So made it into a space worm track - and called him an Uber.

/ Can't blame him - see actual shape below (not mine) :

Digital abstract painting entitled Fastigium, which is a term describing the crest or peak of a wave, especially of an ill ess.  Especially relevant in these times.

Bald Eagles along the Wabash River - they tend to congregate there in the winter because it's open water so they can fish.

My cousin is a total beach babe and my best friend. I saw this pattern on pinterest and knew it was perfect for her. The original yarn colors were going to be dusty blue shades.

After I made the swatch I realized it didn't capture her vibrance. So I went more tropical. Definite upgrade. This is the fourth blanket I've ever made. While I was working on it, I realized that "made with love" is a real concept. This project was made with lots of love and joy.

Early wire sculpture.
I had set myself the challenge of doing each sculpture out of a single strand of wire. With the exception of the bindings at the base of each leg, the entire scorpion is one piece.
The bindings were necessary due to the gauge of the wire
