Red - 8x8"

This might just be as "red" as I can get for a bit. I am really having fun with my still-life practice the last week or so. I might just have to do a non-red thing tomorrow. I know this could have been a lot better but am trying to portray something as complicated as the mola in the background without drawing the detail precisely but painting the visual object-ness of it. I collected a bunch of molas (appliqu├ęd textiles) when I spent some time in Colombia in 2006 - my daughter and I bought a bunch of them in Cartagena at a street vendor's during a total downpour and I just rediscovered them the other day......expect to see them again!
