Orange Envy

Ok, so you've probably guessed that the theme this month is the color orange. If you can guess why I titled this collage Orange Envy, then please tell me, because I really have no idea!

The color orange was an easy choice for me for the month of September. Here in the Midwest we are just starting to see tiny tinges of orange on the leaves reminding us all that summer is over. I like the the fall (don't love it) because it signals that quiet and more reflective times are ahead of us. Personally, I like to hibernate and incubate my creativity during the long winter and the fall starts me on that process...

As for this collage, it was inspired by the centerpiece. An image I borrowed from the Walters Art Museum. Since it was a nice round shape, I decided to go a head with the center placement of it and highlight it with some torn orange pieces of paper.
