Orange and Turquoise

I like this color combination.

Postcards painted in acrylics on recycled cardboard. Summer, 2016.

    And you would be 100% right. I love the color, always have, and I can’t think of anything it doesn’t fit with or enhance. I also really like turquoise jewelry, by the way, too.

    Thank you. I like how the layers of paint, combined with the hint of the print on the original cardboard, have that effect of being able to be seen through, but also hiding something.

    Thank you. I really do appreciate it when people take the time to like and even more when they comment, because – it’s their time they are giving to my work. I still find that surprising and gratifying even after all these years of blogging. There are certainly plenty of other things in this world for someone to be paying attention to, that is for sure. As for the turquoise crowd, I just love the color, and I have a really nice tube of turquoise paint I can’t stop using.

    yes, i would agree…the combinations seem to work well…although for me seemingly it is not so from harmony as it is because there is a balanced resistance between the vibrant and earthen tones. the first one, which is my fav of the three, could be an aerial shot of a body of water encroaching on the coastline, the shore pushing back. And so on…

    Yes, the word balance says it all. Whenever I paint, I have noticed that when one element, color, whatever, is changed, all the others kind of shift (almost as if you can see it happen, very interesting to me) and to me the aim is to get it all to come to an equilibrium, a kind of resolution, where all the parts relate and fit.

    yes, indeed…harmony, like any marriage, is powerful because it doesn’t manifest easily….there is effort, there is struggle…finding that arrangement that one wouldn’t think fits, but somehow it does….finding the nature of nature.
