The start of our next round of the  

Nibblefest Art Contest 

begins in just a few days! 

(on the 20th) 

The theme for January 2014 is....:


"If you see a tree as blue, 
then make it blue." 
~Paul Gauguin

Artwork by Nibblefest artist, Nina Kuriloff

"...'Oh! Darkly, deeply, beautifully blue', 
as someone somewhere 
sings about the sky...."
~Lord Byron
Artwork by Nibblefest artist, Penny Lee Stewart

"There is no blue 
without yellow and without orange."  
~Vincent Van Gogh

Artwork by Nibblefest artist, Heather Sims

"The bluebird carries the sky upon its back."

~Henry David Thoreau

Artwork by Nibblefest artist, Patience of Art of Patience


   “The old cathedrals are good, 
but the great blue dome 
that hangs over everything is better.”

 ~Thomas Carlyle

Artwork by Nibblefest artist, Jenny Luan Frye

 "Blue is the only color 
which maintains its own character in all its tones.
It will always stay blue; 
whereas yellow is blackened in its shades, 
and fades away when lightened; 
red when darkened becomes brown, and diluted with white
is no longer red, but another color - pink."
~Raoul Dufy

Artwork by Nibblefest artist, Christine E.S. Code of CES

"Blues is easy to play, 
but hard to feel."
~Jimi Hendrix
Painting by Nibblefest artist, Penny Lee Stewart


"Blue color is everlastingly 
appointed by the Deity to be a source of delight."
~John Ruskin 
Painting by Nibblefest artist, Rachel Biddlecome
