Pink Moment

Today was all about mailing tax returns, windstorms and power outages.  We're having wind gusts of 50 to 60 mph, and let me just say, it has been a bad hair day!  The next time our weatherman issues a "Weenie Dog" alert, Rodeo and I are going to stay inside! 

Painting this little pink carnation provided a much welcome respite from the blustery day.  I really enjoy the way a color's true value is reflected against a mid-tone gray, so that was my focus.  Also, experimenting with mixing warm grays and cool grays.  Usually, I don't re-work my daily paintings, but I think that I may darken the background on this one.  I'm still considering it.  If I make any changes, I'll be sure to post the new image for you.

Enjoy the weekend!

I love the pink carnation against the grey background, it makes it really come out!
