Orange Reflections - SOLD

Pin It
"Orange Reflections"
Oil, 6" x 6" on museum quality canvas panel.
$200 with display easel.
This week has been insane. We are heading up to Stanford this weekend for Swim Parent's Weekend. We get back on Sunday and I leave on Monday for Atlanta for a three day workshop with Dreama! I have a list with 37 things on it that need to be completed before Monday. The good news is that about half of them are crossed off. The bad news is that half of them ARE NOT crossed off.
I underestimated the preparation required for an out of town workshop, especially when it comes to logistics for securing a location, hotels, dinners, etc. I will forever be indebted to my brother and his wife as they have been very helpful with the arrangements. They are also opening up their house for the "After Workshop Dinners" and that is simply incredible!
Somehow in all of my craziness, and in-between finishing commissions, I was able to paint this small, bright and happy painting. Of course this wasn't one of the 37 items on my list. But because I love the feeling of "crossing things off my list" ... I added it to the list and promptly crossed it off!  So ... in truth, there are 38 items on my list.

You added it just so you could cross it off? *snort* That is SO something I would do too. :) Love, love, love those orange reflections on blue. Beautiful! And good luck with crossing the rest of those bad boys off!

Great painting!! Love it! I hope you get all 38 things done. It am also a list maker and have been known to write things down on my list just so I can cross them off. Good Luck! And I hope to get to meet you:)
