"Hot Pink"

5"x7"
acrylic on masonite

At one of the festivals we attended I captured this scene of the young lady resting in the heat of the day. I loved this little umbrella that she had blocking the sun. I’d seen them all day long dotting the crowded street. They came in assorted colors of blue, purple, red, and orange. I had never seen these before and became obsessed with the way the bright color of the umbrella filtered through the fabric and turned everything under its canopy. I wonder if anyone else was as impressed by this.

A wonderful piece. Wonderful composition and I love the colors, I like how the pink is grayed down a bit.
