Warm January

“Warm Weather in January.” Oil on Canvas. 2013.

The canvas is 12″ x 12″ and is a wonderful 3″ deep. I wish this photo showed the sides of the canvas, which I’ve painted straight cadmium red. The red “frame” changes the overall tone of this painting in more ways than one– it becomes hyper-warm (the yellow and bluish purple seem to cancel each other out) and energetic, almost kinetic, especially along the edges where the cad red and the sky meet.
