Viviva Saffron is a juicy, transparent orange, falling somewhere between Pyrrol Orange and New Gamboge. On the rare occasion that I get to paint with this much orange, this would be a lovely choice, especially out in the field. Viviva Color sheets are highly transportable, so this one is going with me next time I head for the Skagit Valley Tulip fields.
“I am a contemplative artist who has trouble accessing verbal skills. Finding the right words to talk about the amazing things I observe around me can be frustrating. It is much more natural for me to pick up a paintbrush, some embroidery floss or my camera when I wish to share some new discovery. The artwork I create is meant to be enjoyed on whatever level the viewer experiences it and not layered with complex meaning. Feathers, fur, flowers and the incredible variation I find in wildlife not only inspire me, but compel me to share every nuance with you.
