Fall And Orange

"Don't use orange in your paintings, it's a hard color to decorate with.", I have heard this phrase many times by those in the know, here in Atlanta. Lucky me, it's not my favorite color anyway, but occasionally I get a craving (usually in the Fall) and I reach for that ancient tube of Cadmium Orange. "What about that sage advice?" you ask, well...every painting of mine that has contained the offensive hue has sold.

Is it me, or does this guy have a strange resemblance to Springsteen, circa 1987? Bruce as a pumpkin rustler.
