seeing red/little red squares

Today's color: RED

OK...I'm a copy cat, and happily so.
This post was inspired, in part, by (everyone's favorite angry hillbilly) Joanne Mattera's blog post on Spring Greens  and her recent post on "Red"  as well as Kate Beck's post on Orange. There are others, such as the annual Red exhibit at Cheryl Hazan...
I love the idea and look forward to offering up my version of Seeing Red/Little Red Squares.
Thanks to the artists who sent their splendid red!
Enjoy...

 UPDATE:
I'm happy to expand this as I find other pieces. 
I'll add to the top...

a pleasant surprise to find your blog exploring the theme of red paintings... below is a link to a 'red' painting of mine, from an entry in my own blog also entitled 'seeing red'... what a coincidence...

What a delicious post Pam,
so enjoyed the delight of it...
the not-knowing-what-to-expect-ness of it -if that makes any sense...

it washed over me with so much energy!
Thank you!

I loved this post, and to see what the artists did with the color red. The color we respond to emotionally, from anger to love, and all the little nuances in between. Thank you!
