[t]he Blue Period (Spanish: Periodo Azul) of Picasso is the period between 1900 and 1904, when he painted essentially monochromatic paintings in shades of blue and blue-green, only occasionally warmed by other colors. These somber works, inspired by Spain but painted in Paris, are now some of his most popular works, although he had difficulty selling them at the time.
Looks like I am going through a Blue Period myself - perhaps "la Période Bleue" in honor of my French-Canadian side ?

Somber ? Kind of. The color matches my mood. Pretty blue, kind of sad, a little stuck. Okay, maybe a lot...

Is it okay to wallow in the Blue-ness for awhile ? Emercing myself in the color is one thing that feels really soothing during right now. Not sure what else to do to shake them blues.

Will my Période Bleue last four years ? Don't know... So far it has been....

... four days. Does that make a "period" ?
Then again, I did do this piece for a thank you card yesterday :

Maybe the end of the Blues is in sight ?
Happy Friday !
