I love them ... to eat... to paint... to simply look at. Funny, because orange is not a color that would come up on my 'short list' of favorites. But I loved the bouncing reflections from the saucer on to the Persimmon, and the highs and lows in the shadows. The ground on this board is very very absorbent - I think it's gessoboard - so some of the looseness that would/could come from sliding brushstrokes full of paint together didn't happen, but it's OK, I like it anyway.
On my Studio Blog I'm posting some photos from my Artist In Residence day at the Furnace Brook Middle School in Marshfield, MA. The kids were amazing, and I did two little panels, explaining about A Painting A Day, and they did one (taking turns, of course) and I did one, and I'll post mine there, too - I can't believe I forgot to take a photo of the one the kids did - it was great!
