Rhymes with Orange, Zebra, Original Oil Painting
Rhymes with Orange
Oil on canvas
The canvas is stretched on .75 inch stretcher bars.
This painting went through a number of manifestations and color experiments before landing as a vibrant and saturated zebra hanging out with floating oranges. The background is a rich teal color that offsets the orange and ruddy hues of the zebra and the floating citrus fruit.
I figure if I can make a zebra painting called, "Cantaloupe," it makes sense that I make one named for citrus. Contemporary Surrealism, or whatever we prefer to call what I do, is fun!
The fun side is... floating oranges.
The symbolism side is the running joke that nothing rhymes with orange. I have strong black sheep vibes (I say with a smile). So I often feel like I don't rhyme with anything either, at least, not directly. Indirectly, or in other realms, oranges go really well with lots of things. It's all a matter of context, and finding our people.
Display your artwork out of direct sunlight in a dry location and enjoy!
When handling artwork, make sure your hands are clean and hold it from the sides, back, or a display mechanism if one is attached (like a frame or mat on paintings and prints, and a base on a sculpture).
Please keep artwork and prints out of direct sunlight.
Please do not get artwork wet.
Refrain from touching the surface of artwork. The oils from skin can discolor or damage artwork.
