I wanted to move on…. but no ….. an email from Frank sent me back to the Modified Triad of Orange, Red and Yellow.

Another try at red, yellow and orange

It worked nicely when Oxalis was the subject.  The difference is that the Oxalis leaves are somewhat flat.  The trumpet valves are cylindrical.  I don’t get hooked on the easy issues, I get fixated on the bigger challenges.  Finally, I feel like I’m learning something!  Sometimes I feel as if I should focus my energy on the issue of world hunger instead of indulging myself solving the challenge of painting trumpet parts using a modified triad color scheme.  Passions are what they are….
