Oranges and Chinese Lantern Plant 12 x 16 Oil on Panel

I hope everyone had a nice Memorial Weekend.  Thank you to all the people that keep our Country safe! This is one weekend I am glad I didn't go to the beach with the tropical storm.  I have been on enough vacations in my life where all it did was rain the whole time. 
 With this painting I wanted to try and create atmosphere around the oranges like I see so many artists doing.  I think it worked out like I wanted.  The next batch of Chinese Lantern Plants are growing and I should get some nice ones this fall.  Just remember if you plant them they are like Kudzu- they spread everywhere.
