Good day everyone! I have always loved the colors of turquoise stones. The different hues, Indian turquoise is a beautiful bluish shade, desert turquoise is a darker shade and then there are the greenish stones. My color palette for painting consists of turquoise, blues, greens, colors of the ocean, the sky, beautiful swimming pools, the colors of the "Emerald Coast" on the beaches of the Gulf of Mexico. In the south, summer = trip to the beach! Only 300 miles to the coast, and boy, it is so worth the trip! Family vacations to the beach, you just can't beat it. I want to show you this blog which I am totally loving, http://www.houseofturquoise.com/ Love, love love it.
