Morning Glory

My tube of Cadmium orange was the inspiration
for this painting. It is a color I rarely use,
but decided to try out its rich vibrancy more often.
This is the second in a series of art with words
as part of the composition. (Not sure how many I will paint).
Entered this one in Dana Marie's Rendition Me This challenge
entitled "Dreams and Wishes".
The saying is a quote from Paul Gaugin. It says:
"Seek art in nature by dreaming in the presence of it."

Mystery and Wisdom

Painted for Dana Marie's Rendition Me This challenge.
The quote says: "Life is full of mystery patiently waiting
for us to grow in wisdom!"

Four Calling Birds

What do you do if you miss the deadline of one challenge?
You revise a bit and enter it in another challenge.
I originally intended this painting for Dana Marie's Artistic Sentiments challenge,
but missed the deadline, so I added a fourth bird and entered it
into DPW's Twelve days of Christmas challenge.
