contemporary figurative painting
acrylic on hardboard
9" x 12"
Something I started in class this past week then took it home and refined a bit. It feels so good to be experimenting with faces again, as I have a new goal of getting ever looser especially in my figurative paintings. And this one I feel as though I successfully stopped before I overworked it. In a previous painting on this panel there was a lemon tree....and you see that golden globe up at top right? Once upon a time that was a lemon. But now, well, it's a glowing globe, and this gal is mesmerised by it!
Thanks to Joan D. for the title idea. She was telling me about the orange moon this time of year.
