PPF/SOC 5: Heat Wave

The color palette for this week's Summer of Color Challenge is yellow and candy apple red. This made me think of the heat of summer and decided to simply drip red paint over a yellow background (hoping it wouldn't read too much like blood). I was so pleased when I found this Steven Wright quote to complete my post card. Dedicated to my friend Deb Turtle and everyone else sweltering this summer.  Linking up to Paint Party Friday, as well!
There's only one week left in the summer of color challenge, but I have a couple extra post cards, so I might continue to challenge on my own (using some of the combos that I voted for but which didn't get chosen). Anyone else want to play along for a few more weeks? If so, let me know in a comment and we'll figure something out.

Great take on this week SoC challange. Love the funny quote!

Deb @ Paper Turtle said...

This made me chuckle this morning. If I saw a heat wave, I'd probably give it an inappropriate hand signal at this point! Haha! Really cool piece, Rinda, and I think the red looks like a melting crayon.

Linda said...

Ha-love your tongue in cheek SOC piece! I'm going to try some of the other color combos too despite it ending soon. Happy PPF!

Wonderful card. I wouldn't be waving, unless I was doing it with just one finger. :)

AnnieC said...

LOVE this - totally stunning! You're very very good at this :o)xxx

Ayala Art said...

No, I wouldn't wave back hehehehe I;m actually hiding from it :oP
This is a funny one Rinda, and hard colors to work with but the end results is happy.

Missus Wookie said...

Oh I like this color combo - I used it in one of the shower rooms next door. Makes me smile every time I walk in.

I'd wave back but then my 'hotter' is cooler than my AZ friend's 'cooler' so it is all relative!

Miriam said...

Oh I love this Rinda. I will miss this challenge so would love a few more weeks.

Cheri said...

Well, I'm glad I came back because apparently the comment I left earlier never posted. grrrrr blogger... What I said was I LOVE it! And yes, I'd love to continue for a few more weeks with color combos we didn't get. I've really enjoyed stretching myself and working with combinations I would have never chosen on my own.

That's funny. If I saw a heat wave, I'd run the opposite direction.

Happy PPF!

Gail said...

Thanks for the chuckle this morning. Wow, that colour combination really makes it feel like the heat wave we had this past week! The red makes me think of everything melting in the bright yellow sunlight.
