Orange You Good For Me, 6x6 Acrylic


This was the most luscious orange!  When I sliced it for breakfast I knew I had to paint it.  Things are hopping these days, getting ready for all the early Summer shows.  It doesn't help that it coincides with a Nor'easter-like urge to start new paintings - I should be simply wrapping up, framing, photographing and submitting this time of year.  Instead I'm stocking up on canvases, sketching out and making notes for new paintings, techniques I want to try... etc.  I'm hopeless.

  2. I like this painting; I like the orange against the blue and the shapes and their arrangement. And hey, who wouldn't rather paint and sketch than organize stuff for ANY reason!!!! Mary's right, you're not hopeless...you're an artist!
