Prussian Blue

Vincent van Gogh’s “Starry Night” painting

A human error

A timely happenstance

Created a masterpiece


The Accidental Creation of Prussian Blue Pigment

(Image is “Starry Night” by Vincent Van Gogh painted using the color Prussian Blue)

I recently read an article stating how the beautiful color of Prussian Blue was created. This beautiful color was the result of an accident! A great reminder that sometimes mistakes we make can be for good.



A born and raised Midwesterner who traveled to Oregon in 2006 via the Oregon Trail route, fell in love with Oregon and now call it home. I am retired and pursuing my life long dream of becoming a Freelance Inspirational Writer.

  1. Absolutely! I love Bob Ross’s way of looking at painting. He says, “There are no mistakes, only happy accidents.” And the Bible says, “All things work together for good to them who love God, to them who are called according to His purpose.”

    1. Yes! What you say is very true Angela. That verse has always been one of my favorites and I have experienced God working it out in my life many times. I do like Bob Ross’s viewpoint as well. Very positive thinking 😊. Thanks for visiting, reading and commenting Angela. Blessings to you.
