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.
