Orange You Glad? 5x7 Acrylic



Reports of my demise have been greatly exaggerated - or however that quote goes, but they're not that far off the mark!  Last Friday I thought I was simply having a very rare bout with asthma, but it turned into - the flu - surprise!  And while I rallied to 'help' move me into my new studio on the weekend, it was my tireless husband and son Conor who did all the work.  I thought I was out of the woods Monday but lets just say I'm FINALLY human again, and started a daily painting yesterday - it literally took me all day to get to finish it - then today I looked at it and gasped - what 7 year old painted over my painting?  So I went to work again and re-painted it, loving the brightness this time of year, loving the orange and green together.  Also I changed the background and the depth of color (thank you Mary) on the bottom of the lime on last week's 'Limey', but for the life of me, in any light I can't get the right yellow that the background is - even fiddling with it on the computer.  You'll just have to take my word for it till I can capture it!

  1. Hey Kelley, just checked in today (Thursday) and I love the jam jar but the oranges are my favorite, the painting looks very fresh and does not look like it took any effort whatsoever, ah art!
