Lester Goldman, "Acephalian Construct," 1989, acrylic and spray paint on paper.

Blue . . . the color of harmony, spirituality, infinity, and sadness. Artists have used blue since the time of the Egyptians, when it was derived from minerals at great expense and difficulty. It is the favorite color of the half the people questioned in an international survey.
