Blues are also colors of Christmas

"Starlight," 5 x 7 watercolor card
Blues. I use more blues in painting than any other. Don't know why.
As my three month individual Christmas card watercolor challenge continues, this one reflects my love for the Southwest, for the big skies, for the iconic yucca.
Blues used: Royal, Ultramarine, Peacock.
And I found out this week that the color for the name "Terry" is blue. Hmm.
