Weekly Challenge- "I've got the blues"

image courtesy of  Chicago Blue's Bar
The theme for this week's challenge is "I've got the blues"
I wanted to use a topic that was open ended and offered many possibities for interpretation.  You could create a piece that's predominantly BLUE or you could go with a more traditional definition....  I found many in my search- here are two of them.....
blues: noun
1: a type of folksong that originated among Black Americans at the beginning of the 20th century; has a melancholy sound from repeated use of blue notes

2: a state of depression; "he had a bad case of the blues" [syn: blue devils, megrims, vapors, vapours]
So there's your theme for the week; I hope you enjoy it!
Cheers,
Stephanie
