I had a lot of fun with this Daily Paintworks challenge because as you may have noticed, I love the color orange!  Apparently the designers have designated "Tangerine Tango" as the color of the year.  Our challenge was to paint a picture with the color of the year predominant.    My friend Ann Feldman beat me to the orange vegetables, so I raided my grandsons' toy box in my basement.  I kept calling "Pokey" " Gumby", until someone reminded me that "Gumby" is a little green rubber man, and this is his horse" Pokey"!  The fire truck is broken with its' ladder missing, but "what the hey"!  I like the weird little cross-eyed ball, too.

Below is a photo of "the beginning", my value study and start of putting in color.

  1. This is wonderful Gloria! Brings back so many memories from my boys' childhoods. Gumby was a permanent fixture in our house! Sorry to cramp your style on those veggies LOL!


Thanks for leaving me a message. I so appreciate hearing from you.
