Still Life with Handmade Teacup and Clementine

Not long ago, I read that - in Renaissance art - oranges were a symbol of free will. Isn't that fun? It's like a glimpse into the artist's world. So interesting!

It is a gorgeous day here. In the Texas panhandle, a spring day with little or no wind is to be celebrated. I painted early, so that I can spend the afternoon in my garden. 

Have a great day!
