The B’s blue period

“B” is for boys – or “les garcons” – that’s the nickname I gave Thierry and Dimitri when they first came to Indigo some years ago as guests. Then we became friends and I take the opportunity here to give them a big thanks for the big help they have given  me with the brochure, the business card and now this new website.

.When they came in December last year they brought a pot of striking blue paint – “bleu video” they called it. This special blue is close to the blue invented by the French artist Yves Klein and it is used as a screen background for movies and videos

But enough of the technical part, now for the fun…

On Christmas night Dimitri started to paint the Indigo letters on the art gallery’s wall, then helped by my grand-daughter Jacquelle they painted the entrance and the bell, the eggs in the nest, the backgammon table, and a little stool. When they went back to Paris they left the blue with me …

In February I started to paint with the B’s blue. I started with the stripes on the royal palm – that reminds me of the columns of Buren in the Palais Royal in Paris. Then I painted the heart with an arrow on the side of my bathroom under a giant pandanus tree. My latest touch (for the time being) is on the cactus near the kitchen entrance.

That colour has become part of Indigo now. So if you see the B’s blue in an unlikely place in Dominica, it is me! That’s my new plan…
