Code Lime

After using the three primary colors and three secondary colors, I had to decide on what color to use next. I wanted colors with single names and not hyphenated names involving the first six colors. That lead me to choose "lime." Some might argue "Lime Green" would be the full name. I figured "lime" was enough information in naming a color.

Having used a double spiral in another painting, I figured I'd use a single spiral in this painting. Passersby have often stopped to gaze at it and then talk to me about it. I guess that's better than having my piece ignored.

 Again, like the two paintings just before this one, I had trouble with putting colors on top of my background colors. I had to mix colors even more for this painting. The result was a more muted painting.
