DAY 13 - 30 paintings in 30 days ---- WARM AND SWEET!

I guess this cold weather has me thinking warm.  Hopefully it will warm by the end of this week.  I heard today 37 by Saturday.  WOW!!  I think the high today was 0.

I did some postcard size paintings for a gallery in Sioux Falls and had always liked the photo I took of the orange.  I had always wanted to do another one, so figured this was the time.  The painting went together quite easily.  I learned a couple days ago, and was reminded again today, that all the details are not necessary to give the viewer the feeling that the painting was meant to give.  I also used my Indian Yellow paint, which a friend who has recently moved away had shown me.  It really is an orange and works equally as well in sunsets as it does with oranges.

Warm and Sweet
