Illustration Friday: Simple (click for bigger view)

For this simple topic, I simplified my color palette to gray and orange... Limited. I got this idea two weeks ago when I was walking my dog, Vince. It was gray and rainy out. But the sky had this incredible depth. The clouds were moving slowly against this subtly gradiated sky... darker the further you looked up. It was breathtaking. And I thought "oh... I'd love to have a bright orange umbrella to contrast with this right now". And so the idea was born. The chair comes from the idea of sitting still and enjoying what is around you, including the gray skies... Not just sitting around waiting for blue skies.

Just some things I've been thinking lately...

Happy Valentine's Day tomorrow, by the way!
