Orange you glad that it’s October?

Just spent a fabulous weekend in Portland. Attended the opening of The Body Beautiful at the Portland Art Museum (and had the opportunity to hear Storm Large sing), ate delicious dinners with family and friends and last (but certainly not least) took a 2-day painting class with the amazing Jill Berry. Consequently I almost missed out on this 52 Photos Project prompt – ORANGE.

Under the Influence, Jill’s wonderful class, had us study four painters – Miro, Wosene Worke Kosrof, Wayne Thiebaud and Hundertwasser. We then created our own interpretations of their works. It was challenging and exciting and I’d forgotten how much I like to paint . . . Thanks Jill!
