Red is so hot! And one color which I rarely use, with the exception for accents when needing some zing! in my painting. The color can be quite ominous too, especially in skies. It breathes of fire and carries such a pretty glow, that I'm thinking I really should appreciate it much more.

So here I was playing in my studio with my friend, Alex Richardson. He decided he wanted to learn how-to paint. Nothing big he says and probably 20 minutes worth of time or 45 tops.

Ha!

Little did he know how long my pastels take. But determined Alex was and he wanted a RED sky. Told him how pretty blue skies were, but he just didn't want to hear it, so red it was. We worked side-by-side with each creating the same image. After 3 1/2 hours Alex held his pretty, glowing red sky in his hands.

And with that, I leave you with a little zing!
