"Path of Light"

Here is a new painting featuring Chinese or Japanese Lanterns which are very challenging, interestingly shaped and colorful. When they are dried they are a muted orange, but when they are fresh like these, they are a very bright orange. Last fall I picked these from a friend's garden, and this year I'm going to plant my own. This little stem of them looked like the lights you might find along a path, hence the name. The turquoise teapot added a nice, cool complement to all that warmth. Enjoy.

Medium: Oil on Ray Mar panel
