River Song ©Morri
24″ x 32″ acrylic/canvas
it has an answer,
it has a song.
It has been cold and gray here the last couple of days..so unlike Florida! Thus, my choice to post this painting. (**see a little story about this commissioned piece below)
Okay, back to the subject of orange
for one thing..
I LOVE the colour orange..I think I fell in love with it, by accident.
I never realized how much it finds its way into my art work and in my life. I’ve been organizing my studio and I started noticing how many pieces have orange in them! Now I am pondering painting my studio walls orange..at least one or two.
Orange makes me feel happy and WARM.
Okay..beyond art (which I am allowed to do on here) lol
* Note: I’m still deciding what I want this little blog to be about. Obviously, I am all about art..yet it’s not what I am ALL about. I have some artist friends that live and breathe art..competitively trying so hard to be a famous artist, I guess. I think I was on that train for a while..but grew weary of it. Not that I was obsessed with it..but you can get carried away with yourself especially with winning awards, prizes, and exhibitions. That is not what started my journey, and I refuse to let that define me as an artist or as a person. Either someone connects to my work (and me) or they don’t.
I will do as I initially intended here, just post about whatever suits my fancy..
which tends to be a lot. tee hee
So back to beyond art..
Like my scarves, of orange….
All ordered from Amazon (Prime, no doubt)
A girl (or guy) can never have too many scarves..agreed?
and beyond scarves…
Look at this colorful piece I found:
$2.00 on clearance
I think it is meant to be a strapless blouse, but for me it will be a skirt (top of the knee) paired with a black (or white) turtle neck, black tights & boots with a faded jeans jacket. For winter, of course..and yes, summer brings other possibilities for this little non-skirt.
Hmm…maybe I’ll start posting photos of what I throw together.
I thought blogging too time consuming, but I throughly enjoyed this and now I am thinking I will use the
time I was spending on facebook.
Note: I think I am over Facebook! They control that world..they keep changing things up (especially the business pages). My other reason is I often find it SO fake and plastic..like back in high school days.
Before I hush for now…My song for this post is by the lovely Vicci Martinez <–check out her website!
A powerful message to me and if you wish, to you…
(bringing more orange into my world..and limited time on Facebook)
ta ta ’til next time,
seek inspiration & seek to inspire,
** Note: River Song was commissioned for the cover of a directory. Then the painting was in the collection of the owners of the publishing company. It hung in a few local community and government places in our county and was to be moved across the river to another county to a permanent location. I was commissioned to create another painting this year, but then one of the owners became seriously ill during the process last year. Some other things unfolded..anyway, there was discussion of using the River Song image for another directory in another county. I finally asked about simply having the painting back and calling it even…they finally agreed. I am happy to have the little red-winged blackbird singing on my wall now.
