Orange. Do you love it or hate it?

 6x6" oil on canvas.
Orange is one of those colors that people feel really strongly about. 
What about you? Do you love it or hate it? or is it just a 'meh' color to you?
 I happen to love it - especially for a ground for my paintings.  I've tried to paint with other grounds...even just white.  But nothing gets my juices flowing like a deep orange background.  HERE is an old post showing the background orange.
 Painting with it is super fun too.
 Check out THIS painting and THIS painting.
  


Sometimes the orange doesn't have to be the main event to pack some punch, like in THIS painting.

Last but not least: THIS is one of my favorite plein air paintings from a few years back.

So what do you say?  Enjoying some orange this week?  Share it with a link in the comments, we'ld love to see it!!

Love orange!! It has so many interesting and beautiful hue variations. This bright, pumpkin shade is one of my favorites! Thanks for sharing.
