Reference Photo with Painting, Orange Ice,Kim Blair

 'Orange Ice', 11x14 oil on canvas
Reference Photo for 'Orange Ice'

While browsing through some poppy photos I came upon the reference photo for 'Orange Ice'.  It was interesting for me to see how much the two looked similar and yet how different they were at the same time.   Which led me to remember... it is our 'interpretation' of what we are looking at that becomes the painting... and what you 'leave out' is just as significant as what you 'leave in'.

*This painting is included in my exhibition at the University of Alberta Hospital.  The exhibition will be on display until February 6... just 9 more days with a percentage of sale proceeds going to 'The Friends of the University Hospital'.
