Blue Background on Waking from Suspend

Lately when I put my computer to sleep and wake it up I have noticed the background changes to a solid blue color. This has happened twice in the last few days, both times where I put my computer to sleep and woke it back up. Restarting fixes the issue, but I would prefer an actual solution rather than a workaround.

I would like to point out that this issue cannot be replicated 100% of the time, the last two times it happened is when my computer was put to sleep overnight for long periods of time. I just did a test where I put my computer to sleep then immediately turned it back on and everything is fine.

I always update my system fully, and I have been using Garuda for almost 2 months without encountering this issue. This leads me to believe some recent update may have caused the problem?

What do you normally set as the background?

I have it set as the default wallpaper that comes with their gnome installation.

So I noticed that when setting the background the default background image was not listed for selection, I went ahead and manually added it. This seems to have fixed the problem for me.
