"I Am Blue" by Carol Thompson

"'I am blue', but I'm not sad

My silly grin says I am glad

To float above the sandy beach

where happy boys and girls can reach

out and touch my claws;

where folks will pass and maybe pause

to watch me dance upon the air:

a happy crab without a care."

Artist comment:  "I saw this crab at the kite festival and 'snapped' it to paint later in my studio with pastel on Canson Mi-Teintes paper. I did the sky and sand; then, beginning with the eyes, painted the lightest blue, then dark blue, leaving the blacks for last. Finally I drew in the white lines and anchor rope."
