A Journey Through Loss with Art and Color
My Favorite Color is Blue. Sometimes.: A Journey Through Loss with Art and Color

For those of any age who have suffered loss, here is a journey of brilliant color to bring you peace.

Beloved author and artist Roger Hutchison has created a picture book to guide readers through different emotions and reactions related to grieving. The gentle text and illustrations of this lushly colored picture book explore feelings of shock, tears, anger, and hope, using the powerful language and experience of color. My Favorite Color is Blue. Sometimes. is a welcome companion to people of all ages as they journey through loss and grief.

Following the shootings at Sandy Hook Elementary School in Newtown, CT, Roger had the privilege of painting with children and adults who were touched by this tragic event. The experience affected him at a cellular level and convinced him of a vocation to serve those who grieve using his writing and art. This is a children's picture book by design, but accessible to people of all ages.

Praise

Through brilliant colors revealed and remembered, Roger offers sacred space to dwell with grief and be at peace.

Our world is increasingly re-discovering that grief and trauma are whole-body experiences. Hutchison's imagery and art are a feast for the eyes, soaking into the mind's memories and rendering fresh tears, smiles, and that human-divine alchemy of prayer that all great art performs.

Working in hospice and palliative care, we often discussed the lack of appropriate resources to help the children, grandchildren and siblings of our patients process their grief. I wish I'd had a copy of My Favorite Color is Blue. Sometimes. on my shelf. The poetic verse and vivid artwork gently explore the spectrum of emotions grieving children, youth and adults experience.
