Two really bright paintings!



After finishing my Audrey inspired painting with just varying shades of black and my attempt at "Tiffany's" blue, I felt like working in super bright colors and may have gone a bit overboard :D

the lilac and red one is titled Lila Locksmith, always rather aloof. and the portrait that looks like it is almost a jungle motif room is Viola Sperka was a pleasant girl of no particular beauty. The name is different but the phrase came from John Cheever's short story Pot of Gold. When I read something as well written as John Cheever's short stories, I am reminded of why I should stick to painting rather than writing.
