Oranges

I painted the oranges a while back, but they looked so forelorn that I thought I'd try to add a few things I learned from my workshops last month. I"m not sure it worked or not -- but here it is ...

We're winding down and I"ve a pile of papers to get through before next week ....we're also expecting some severe weather -- rain, thunderstorms, high winds, so since our offices are in a mobile unit, we may have to vacate this afternoon if things get as bad as predicted ... if that's the case, I'll check in tonight if I have Internet service at home .... fingers crossed!

Have a great day!

They look good enough to eat. I love the colors you used here.

What a neat piece -- so different from what you usually do so especially delightful to see you spreading your wings again!
Love the blues and oranges together.
Keeping you in my thoughts about the weather.
Hugs,

Lin - You captured the light on the orange slices really well!!!!! Hope the weather isn't too bad down there. They were expecting snow in New Orleans today! We're expecting rain today and tomorrow too. Stay safe!

Lin, questa disegno é stupenda!!! ;))

The colours are not only complementary andvibrant but they capture that quintessential Italian essence.

This is my favourite piece!

Striking balance with the blue - no sure how it looked before, but it is a winner now - stay safe - we have heavy rain, wind too in CT.
