I decided to make the house with blue siding because many of the old-timers believed that a house painted blue kept evil spirits away! Sometimes you still see blue bottles hanging from a bush out in the front yard for the same reasons. I do not know the origin of this idea. If you would like more information about this painting on canvas, click here.

Interesting that blue was used, is there a source of this information?
Old Gullah folk belief.
