It might be time to clean my palette! This is my oldest watercolor palette and the one I tend to grab the most, even though I have newer and bigger ones. It has traveled with me to so many places and feels like an old friend.

“Adopt the pace of nature; her secret is patience.”

~Ralph W. Emerson 

There are so many bulbs to admire, but I have a soft spot for the orange tulips I planted a few years ago.

Did you know that orange is considered an optimistic color, known to uplift your spirit?

Today on the blog I am sharing some spring inspiration as well as more fun things about orange! Link in bio

This painting is called, “The Wave”. The leaves on the tulips reminded me of “the wave” people do together at stadium events. I have always loved seeing & feeling the joyful energy in the crowd. It’s much like being at a Jimmy Buffett concert and hearing everyone sing and act out “fins” (look it up if you don’t know what I mean~SO FUN!).

This kind of energy LIGHTS ME UP!!! There is something so beautifully powerful in the joy of the human spirit don’t you think? .

*You can “catch The Wave” in the shop

“Orange is the happiest color.” — Frank Sinatra 

I have been thinking a lot about color and why I choose the colors I put into my paintings. In researching the color orange it was interesting to learn that orange often represents sun, FUN, warmth and tropical surrounding~all things I LOVE! It’s funny how our intuition often guides us, even with simple color choices.
