I have been working on a simplified painting practice. Limited palette, limited brush selection, and limited subject matter. It has been a great experience. I couldn’t be happier with the results. I completed 10-12 paintings focusing on still life in crimson or red. The last week or so I focused on still life in orange.

I do not love orange. I think it might be my least favorite color. I am faced with a struggle. Do I keep going in orange? I painted a naval orange. That was ok. Then I painted rock, paper, scissors because of the orange handle.

And Rock, Paper, Scissors – 12×12 oil on panel

When I finished this painting I wondered what other artists were doing with rock, paper, scissors. I was surprised to see the originality represented. It’s fun to see the same idea painted so many different ways.

And so I continue on in my quest to paint orange things. I am open to any orange ideas. Please feel free to share!

My best,
Emily Warren
