These warm spice colors fall on you like a soft, warm fuzzy blanket. I’m attracted to warm colors for my home all times of the year, after all I did grow up in the 1970’s. Harvest gold refrigerators, sinks and every other appliance are not looked at with horror, but with fond memories.
I had a happy childhood. Growing up in the 70’s felt safe to me. My mom had warm spice colors sprinkled throughout her decor and to this day, my dad’s home has rust colored carpet which I happen to still love. Mom always called it paprika. My sense of color I attribute to my mother. She was wonderfully creative in her own right. My dad, an artist. My art was enthusiastically encouraged.
This little warm spice abstract painting is what I’d call a study. I’m studying different colors and how they interact with one another. In this case, it’s the warm spice colors I associate with fall and my childhood. The shapes and strokes I create provide me endless amusement. Sometimes I create brand new color palettes I love, sometimes not so much, that’s why it’s called a study. Each study is an original painting, I don’t think I could recreate them exactly if I tried.
The dimensions for this painting are 2.5″x3.5″. The painting is continued on the sides, so it looks nice from all angles. I’ve glued on a strong round magnet on the back and you can hang it in any direction you want. You can also hang these in a grouping on a wall, just hang it by a small nail. It’s very lightweight.
These original studies are a perfect way to add to or start an art collection. Each one has an individual number assigned to it. This one is 19-021. Varnished and signed on the back by me, Jaime Haney.
