Saffron



14 x 11 inches
oil on linen

The next in my exploration of hues- yellow-orange.  Second choice titles include aurulent, which somewhat inaccurate, and marigold, which fits the hue but strongly evokes the flower.   So, I'm settling on the word saffron, also floral in origin, that is almost as often as a description of color as the spice which was used as a dye.  Again, many pigments were used from cadmium, arylide, euxanthin, which seem less fitting for a title.
