oil 8x8 inches magnify/purchase You might be too young to remember Nesbitt's orange soda. When I was about 19 I drove an orange Pinto around Orange County as a delivery driver for a reproduction company. It was a great summer job. I'd stop in a little market sometime during the day to grab a Nesbitt's and a candy bar. I do like orange. My spotlight made the orange glow, and that's what this painting is about. The brown drapery looked just right to me with the yellow and orange. Painting finished, I suddenly realized how 70's this painting is. I get a good feeling looking at this. Hope you do too. Now I'll go put a flower in my hair. For fellow painters out there: Painted with 4 colors: cad yellow light, cad red light, ultramarine blue and Twhite. All Utrect. Love that paint.


  1. This painting makes me smile. I do not know Nesbitt drinks but I do love the color orange. So funny you drove an orange pinto. I shared a rusty silver/grey one with my brother and sister.
    I love how the orange glows. Great painting!

  2. Love the painting. Of course, I do remember Nesbitt orange. You did create a decade with your palette. Great!
