Feeling like it was time, as my new studio space is all set up, I moved on from crimson and red paintings to orange.

The first rendezvous with orange was a steaming hot disaster. I am too embarrassed to show you…trust me it was BAD.

So, I decided to step back and paint something I know and love fruit. Because orange comes next on the color-wave spectrum I started with basic orange. Good times. I dislike orange in so many ways. I believe the color is my least favorite. I dont know if it is because I live here in TN, the Volunteer state. The UT (university of Tennessee) colors are orange and white. Considering my lack of sport and not attending UT, I never got behind orange the way my neighbors and loved ones have.

But, for this painting process I am going for it. Full on orange. Here is the work in progress:

Thank you so much for following my painting journey and thank you for overlooking my painting mess.

My best,
Emily Warren

The work is inspired by an engagement with play and making peace with uncertainty. I work experimentally, using a digital video to explore painting. I use sound and moving images in non-traditional ways to reverse expectations of horror and comedy. I am drawn to the whimsical nature of self-discovery. I construct repeating narratives, often depicting varying scenarios of serenity, silliness, and reflection.
