Summer of Color - Week 2

This week the colors to work with are orange and hot pink. I occasionally use these colors in my artwork, and always include them in my flower gardens. The colors attract butterflies and hummingbirds and work so nicely with green foliage.

I decided to look through my garden and decorating magazines for photos of flowers and home furnishings in these colors. They were quite easy to find, and often paired together. Working with magazine pages only, I created these three collages.
