A Study in Blue V by Peterix A Study in Blue V by Peterix
Blue is now commonly used to symbolise boys. In the early 1900s, blue was the colour for girls, while pink was for boys (then considered a stronger and more masculine color).

Very beautiful :clap: I love your blue series.
I had no idea that blue color was symbol of girls. And you know what I found? That blue color can...speed up the time :) unfortunately, not literally :)

Speed up time? Really? This sounds very interesting. Can blue make April come faster? ;)
Up until somewhere round the 1920s both boys and girls wore white or grey (and dresses, there's a very cute picture of Ernest Hemingway in a dress as a child :) ), then someone got the idea to color separate them, but then they thought that pink was a strong and masculine color, and blue was more delicate and pretty and suitable for girls. But really cool people doesn't care about this, and wear (of course) black. ;)

If that was literally true, I would send you messages from the future ( my bedroom is blue ) ;)

As you know the blue color reduces stress, creating a sense of calmness and relaxation so if you hurry for example, but look for a longer time at the blue color you stop to worry about the time and unconsciously think that time is running a little bit faster :)

And fully agree about the black :highfive:

Then maybe I should get a pair of blue-tinted glasses to wear on hectic days. :)
