4" X 4" Friday - Orange and Yellow


When I first saw this colour combination as the challenge on 4" X 4" Friday I was stumped. Then it occurred to me that orange and yellow are the two of the colours of Autumn, my favourite season. For whatever reason, I like to have images of people seeming to peer out of a frame of leaves. It gives pieces a very organic feel I think. This is my entry for 4" X 4" Friday.
