About Me


My name is Lydia. I believe in Art Unto Others™, which means I like to create art and then share it.

I appreciate that you stopped by to see me, so I will answer the question most people ask, which is "Where did you get the name Understand Blue?"

When I was little, my dad used to read the Rutabaga Stories, among other things, to me before I went to sleep. They are written by Carl Sandburg, who really had a way with colorful words. One story in particular really spoke to me. It's called Sand Flat Shadows, and it ends with the sentence:

"Only the fireborn understand blue."

It's true you know. And it has haunted me, in a good way, for all my life.

It's also my favorite color, which you may have noticed.

I hope you enjoy my art - please make yourself at home. Thank you for spending time with me.
