Art by Laurie Mueller
I LOVE your palette! Your color is so vibrant, the paintings just glow, especially the oranges...
Thanks, Corinna! I love these colors, too.
I'm with ya: let's get AWAY! You did it—this painting says bah! to frigid, bah! to wind, bah! to gray skies. Is this painting pure invention, or did you have some bit of a reference. As always, love your juxtaposition of positive and negative space, your pops of underpainting brightness, your depth of field.
Thanks, Dotty. No reference picture except for a very similar painting I did years ago. Same colors, etc. No reference for that either. Sometimes I use one, sometimes I just "go at it"!
Laurie - I can almost smell the enticing fragrance of the orange blossoms from here! Sorry about the frigid temps. :o( ...not trying to be coy but we are just getting ready to pick oranges from our tree... Sending sunshine and warmth!!!
Oh geez....I've never thought about picking oranges but now I want to. This is getting old up here!
Laurie you outdid yourself today! This is fantastic!
It is nice to do flowers when the weather is cold and gray. Nice and cheerful - thanks
Thanks, Val! I agree....flowers are the best in the kind of weather!
Shazam! I'm awake now! I really love the cobalt at the bottom. Not the first thing that caught my eye of course, but they rest in those brilliant transitions. Why do I suddenly want a cold drink with a tiny umbrella in it? (chilly here too today)
I'm with ya, Sheila. And I love the word "Shazam!" Hope you don't mind if I borrow it for the title of a painting! Thanks
Saw this in my sidebar and it glistened my whole page - really pops! Nice painting to do on a snowy, windy day.
Laurie, I think we need to start a fan club for you - a well deserved fan club! Another beauty!!
Thank you, Chris.And I'd be first in line for your fan club, too!
This is a great design. I could see this being licensed for many things.
