Classic Blue

I knew from years past that the announcement of Pantone's new color of the year was coming soon. So a couple of days ago I followed the #pantone hashtag, and tried to be patient. In case you don't know, the reveal is always drawn out - almost painfully so. And then suddenly, there it is, and no matter what the choice, there are folks that love it, and of course, those that don't. I've had my favorites over the years, and those I wasn't as fond of, but no matter, I've enjoyed the ritual of creating with it in the new year. Gotta say, though, Classic Blue is a clear winner. In general, I like blue, but I really like this blue.


Keeping with tradition, here's a run-through of my previous Pantone-inspired creations....

:: Living Coral 2019 :: "Timeless"


:: Ultra Violet 2018 :: "Grape Fizzy"

:: Greenery 2017 :: "Evergreenery"

:: Rose Quartz and Serenity 2016 :: "Pantone Meets Bias Tape"

:: Marsala 2015 :: "Sizzling"


:: Emerald 2013 :: "An Emerald Table"
