Naranja Sangrienta

Monday, February 26, 2007 at 12:49 PM
I have a blood orange tree in my yard which produces luscious fruit. When ripe the rinds are deep orange red and the pulp the color of dark red blood. The juice is not as sweet as our California Navel oranges but sweet enough to eat and great for juicing. Rudy has finished picking the last of the oranges and before he juices them I wanted to do a quick painting....trying out my new "loose woman" philosophy. So I just played and approached this somewhat distracted by the pretty view out the window and my plans for a lazy day. So much so I stuck my brush into my coffee while working at the kitchen table!

    Marta - This is delightful! Lucky you to have a teacher. The plate absolutely sparkles and the blood oranges are lovely. You are also lucky to have a blood orange tree.

  2. Plain Jane Says:

    Lovely indeed! The 'loose woman' thing seems to be working!

    This is an absolutely gorgeous painting! You were loose in exactly the right places -- what a great piece!
