Woodstock Landscape

I've been inspired to do some landscapes locally. I move things around a lot and make up my own colors; but hey, that's what we do, right? My backyard faces the woods. We have lots of deer but hopefully not too many ticks.  This was done with yellow/purple palette.

Sun-Kissed Onion

This was done outdoors on my deck; sun was just before noon and very high in the sky since it was the summer solstice. As I look at it now, I realize it's the colors of my new kitchen. I've been dreaming about bright greens! When we bought the house, the kitchen had a bright green walls. Since I usually don't use intense colors as a major area in my paintings or inside on walls, I've been struggling to decide whether to make walls less intense. I'll give myself time to live with it in order to figure it out!
I used the new primary palette and the painting is once again 4x3 inches.
