All the Blues in a Day is a mixed media artwork by Susan Maddux. Susan's recent work draws inspiration from Yukio-e woodcuts and prints as well as the influence of her Japanese ancestry and childhood spent in the tropics of Hawaii, surrounded by art, tradition, and family history.

Of this piece, Susan shares: "While in Hawaii for my residency with Arts and Letters Nu'uanu, I made a point of swimming in the ocean every day. Often I would swim out beyond the waves and float on my back, watching the clouds. Held, weightless. Clouds and water. This piece uses many blues all together in tribute to the nearly infinite complexity of this color that we often take for granted because it feels so familiar. But did you know that the ocean only looks blue because it is reflecting the color of the sky?"

Material: acrylic paint and polymer with archival adhesive on cotton canvas with brass ring

H 17" × W 19" x D 3"
