Oranges and Violets

To move away from the food blogging, I thought I would post this painting done a few years ago. It is hanging on my wall and it makes me think every now and then that I should do some large paintings again. I have been enjoying doing small paintings for the past couple of years - mostly quarter sheets. It is not exactly the best economy to be trying to sell large paintings right now, but it doesn't hurt to have a couple of "show pieces" and be ready when the economy takes a turn for the better.

Don't we all start thinking about what we are going to be doing in the new year while we are trying to wrap up the old year AND celebrate Christmas? There must be a better way to do it - like businesses and governments have a fiscal year that has nothing to do with the regular calendar year. It wouldn't work. It's not natural. There is something about the rhythm of the year since the beginning of time. I'm not gonna mess with that.
