Tangerine Dreams - Summer of Color

It's our last color week of Summer of Color and that color is orange!  Not an easy color for me.  The only way I have ever been able to work with orange is to marry it with pink and maybe a little aqua and yellow. So I've done my girlie in hot pink to balance out the orange.




Tangerine Dreams

This has been a colorful journey and I'm glad I've been able to stick with it in it's entirety.  I've decided to do another girlie for green week even though I had done a different project for that week and I still need to do a brown girlie for the brown week I missed with my Dad's illness.

My plans are to make a Summer of Color art portfolio with all my girls in them.  These new girlies and the portfolio will be revealed within the next three weeks.  Kristin at Twinkle, Twinkle will be instructing us on how we are to present our projects.  Oh, and have I mentioned how fabulous she is?

I hope you are all enjoying the summer.  We've finally got our hot weather and some sun! Yay!  A couple of false starts but I'm hoping it's here for a good long stay.

You know what I like to say - keep the pens, pencils, crayons and paints flying and have a wonderfully artful week!

Forever in art,

Jessi xox

Dear Jessi, I absolutely love your series of color. They are truly delightful. Will you make them into a series of prints to sell? I would definitely be interested in buying some of your pieces. I can't wait to see what else you come up with. I am so glad I got the chance to meet you through this event, I really enjoy visiting and seeing your amazing and beautiful artwork. You have a lovely spirit, as well. Have a blessed and beautiful week.

Your series of color girls would make great cards, too. I love each one of them....and most especially this one. Hot pink and orange just seem to want to be together.

Hi Jessi, all your girls have been so wonderful and I agree they would make great cards and prints. Hot pink and orange certainly work together and I love the added touch of the butterfly. But it's those eyes again, they are so stunning.

What a great colour combination. She's so pretty. Maybe we should get my summer of colour girlies to meet up with yours. I'm sure they'd have a wonderful time chatting over a cup of tea or something stronger...

Hi Jessi!!! LOvin this. Orange and pink are yummy together. I can't wait see the porfolio, it's really a great idea. Glad to hear the sun is breaking out. I know you love to garden. Torrance has been sunny, but sooo gloomy.

Kristin said...

Another favorite! I LOVE your orange - and especially how it is paired with hot pink - one of my favorite combinations! Fabulous cheeks ;) xo

Diane said...

wonderfully stunning!!

Janelle said...

I like all your girls so far. I like how you added more colors to the background. I think it helps the orange form being too overpowering.

Hi Jessi! After being offline for over a month now, I'm finally starting to catch up. So sorry to hear about your dad's illness. I wish you and your family comfort and healing. It's remarkable how much you were still able to accomplish over the summer. The essence of each color really comes through. Your artwork SHINES with light, hope, and a healing quality all its own. Keep it up! Peace and strength, Karen

creatingme said...

oh, out of all these girls, I think she is my favorite. Yes, hot pink does work well with orange. There is something about her face that draws me in. I can't figure it out, but I can't stop looking at her either! I have loved looking at all your work here!

Jenny said...

Oh Jessi, she is gorgeous... your faces are stunning... and am loving the pink and yellow... so pretty...
