More Oranges!



When I was painting at the California Citrus State Park, the Gless Ranch orange stand stood across the street selling 25 lb bags of freshly picked oranges. The day we were painting was warm and we were all getting a bit tired and thirsty. My husband surprised me with lunch and brought everyone oranges. We peeled the oranges and were surprised to see their flesh was pink, like a ruby grapefruit but not as red as a blood orange. They were just beautiful! With 25lbs of oranges we ate oranges for over a week everyday. I loved the look of them so much I took them to a window to photograph them to paint. Here is my newest progression painting called "Cara Cara" http://www.wisegeek.com/what-are-cara-cara-oranges.htm" the name of this amazingly beautifuland delicious orange.

We got some of those "pink" oranges at Costco the other day, yummy!
Those words we have to type to post comments are extremely hard to decipher!

I know, I have been trying to figure out how to remove it and had to go into the old Blogger interface and change the settings. It should be gone now!

You have been so busy!!! I love the painting of the oranges. I can't believe you are now on the board for the plein air events. lol How did that happen? lol I want to be out there with you...that papermaking class looks like fun.

I was able to enjoy some warm weather for plein air painting. We went to the Dominincan Republic for a wedding and I painted all over the resort.
