Study in Scarlet

That's the name of a great Sherlock Holmes story, and from it the title of one of my small pieces in the Seasonal Creeks of Ukiah series.

It struck me that it would be fun to turn the spectrum inside out and paint nature as if we were on a planet where, well, the light was reversed and we saw the complementary colors....so a blue sky would be orange, a wide range of green leaves and grasses would be a wild range of reds, etc...

Yes, it WAS a lot of fun, and it turned out to be a lot of fun on the wall as well. You can see it for another couple of weeks as part of my show at Mo Mulheren's office at 304 N State St, Ukiah.
