After a time period of muted and Fall-ish colors, I decided to pursue more vibrant colors. Reminiscent of orange sherbet and bubbles, when looking at this piece it is hard not to feel like a kid again. I wanted to encompass everything happy, like the feeling a child gets at a birthday party.
This piece is celebratory in nature. From the vibrant colors to the splashes and spills, its purpose is to promote happiness. The pink and orange are mixed with gesso making it much like the texture of icing on a birthday cake. It brings to my mind the sweet smell of my grandmother's famous orange cream cake she makes every christmas, a happy memory indeed!
Since I am a musician and love music, I will share the following tidbit with you. Apart from the obvious, the name of this piece was slightly derived from the REM song, "Orange Crush".
