Backlit Oranges, Acrylic on Gessoboard, 6"x6", $195
Day 27 in the 30 in 30 Challenge. Most of my orange paintings have used a side light of one angle or another. Today I thought I would try using a really strong back light like you would get with the sun coming through the window. I could envision how I wanted this painting to look but getting it to that point proved challenging. Still, I like how this came out. I think I got the effect I was after.

I am a painter living in Vermont. I've been painting for about 20 years learning as I go along. In the last couple of years I've been learning a bunch of new painting techniques and experimenting with new subject matter.
