    If you look at the portion of the frame with the plastic trash in the background you can see how it just glows, it's luminescent.
    Really beautiful.

    The bag in the background is part of the shipping material from the painter.

    Had I not been stunned and dazzled by her beauty I would have shot from the other side so the background would be classy attractive yet manly Park bike tools, sliding drawers of neatly organized bike parts.

    Ah, everyone wants to be the art director.

    That's it, it's a statement! I meant to do that.

    Beauty springs forth from the plastic bag

    What a beautiful red! (that's how they did my orange too, with white underneath)

    Can't wait to see the finished product.

    My truck is that color and they call it "inferno red", I think Mariposa sounds nicer. I want to see the finished product!!

    I kinda like Inferno. It has energy and power.
    My jeep is 'Chili Pepper Red" which makes me think of indigestion.

    And 'Inferno' doesn't?

    The Honda version of basically the same red is called "salsa red".

    My red Honda is called Tango Red Pearl. The VW New Beetle has a Salsa Red, though.

    I didn't know you were Japanese

    Splain that to me then

    Tango.
    Red.
    Pearl.

    Tango Red, yes.

    I'm giving this far too much thought.

    Yes, you are. Pearl is referring to the FINISH. It's not metallic or flat or glossy. It's pearl.

    It is a very pretty color, and looks shiny and new even with a layer of dust on it.

    Hey, good idea!- Next time my furniture is covered with a layer of dust (hmmm...when is it not?)- I'll just say it has a 'pearl finish'.
    Sounds so elegant!
