Pincushions and Pantone Colors

Pantone No. 18-2120: Honeysuckle
oil sketch on paper, 5x7
Color is a faithful muse. I love doing paintings inspired by Pantone's choice for Color of the Year - click here to see No. 15-5519 {Turquoise} in 2010 and here to see No. 14-0848 {Mimosa} in 2009. Yum-my. I've been playing in the studio lately - exploring some new ideas and techniques. Having a great time. Hard to say what will become of them yet but you'll know when I know. In the meantime, some quirky paraphernalia has been jumping onto that post-it note referenced above... I'm just saying.

Oh Mitzi, this is so fun and the colors are pure bliss! Love to see the different ones that are favorites- The shadows of the pony tails is cracking me up!

What a fun painting, and as Carol said a hard painting. Great color combination.
