Juice Break


Homegrown Texas oranges.  Not very pretty.  But so sweet! These look like they're chatting around the pitcher. Or perhaps, drawing straws for who will be juiced first?  Oh, the dilemma!

Love this Darla! I love the different shades you did for the oranges to make them 3- dimensional.

Your oranges are stunning! So fresh, wonderful edges and glowing color. So nice against your cool grays.
Beautiful! Really like your previous painting of oranges as well.

Thank you for your very kind comments, Lorraine. It is a daily struggle for me to keep my brushwork loose. Your work is a great inspiration for me. :)
