Squeeze



As many people know, I've retired my "small works" to spend time creating larger paintings.  But occasionally a small piece slips in there and this is one of them.   Its 6" x 6" in oil on a solid panel that's quite substantial. 

I had barely painted all week outside of demo start,s and the need was there to work up my "palette knife" arm in preparation for a larger painting that is in the works.  This orange hanging in the sun fit the bill well.  There is something about orange that always appeals to me.  Just the sight of a pile of cadmium orange paint or a mixed orange makes me want to lick it!  No, no I don't.  But it does always look delicious.

This orphan small painting is looking for a good home and with that season being just around the corner, it may fit the bill for gift giving.  Adoption papers are available here.
