Does anyone else feel a very strong pull to put your home and life in order after the Holidays. January it seems, is the time to straighten up all the "things" in our life that are spinning out of control. I had a difficult time with my head wanting to unclutter my surroundings and my other side wanting to paint. I was stuck in this rut until the new DPW challenge regarding the new it color for 2012. Tangerine Tango. My inspiration came from Facebook and my niece Mollie. She can capture with a camera, what I can only wish I could do. Thank you Mollie, for this beautiful, inspiring photo. These Tomato Tangos are painted in oil on a 4 x 12 canvas. Can't wait to try a watercolor version.
