Smoky Orangefruit

As a kid, green drew my eyes the most. As a young adult, my preference shifted toward yellow. But around the time of my artistic awakening in my 30's, I developed a real, deep love for the little sliver of the color wheel we call orange. It has such a narrow range compared to it's primary siblings, yellow and red. Too dark and it becomes brown. And yet orange manages to have so many distinct hues. The peel of a fruit, the glow of the sun against the trees, the bright flatness of a safety sign, the vibrant burst of flower petals, each distinct, each enticing. When I got into fractal art, one of my favorite discoveries was how fun it is to stretch through an orange gradient, to really explore the fade between golden yellow and light red. A piece like this one delights my eyes because it lets me wander through a gallery of my favorite hues.
