Art of the Day: Thursday June 27, 2013

Chinese Lanterns

- by Elizabeth Fiedel

This week's theme: Orange

Orange. It's not a modest colour. In fact, it's rather forward. As a colour, it gets noticed. In the past year or so, my fascination with orange has grown. If you look around, you'll see that I'm not the only one. Orange is a very popular colour at the moment. This week, orange also is making an appearance in Art of the Day.

Art: Chinese Lanterns by Artist Elizabeth Fiedel

I'm one of those techno-challenged people who are hopeless when it comes to digital art, so I am in awe of artists who excel in that medium.  Carolyn Shiffhouer is one of those who excel.  My RIP was inspired by Carolyn's "The Gold Vase".  Rather than attempting the impossible by doing a straight RIP of her fabulous piece,  I came in for a closer cropped view and painted the vase of Chinese lanterns in my own style.  I hope I captured a little of the richness of the original.
