Not Quite Ready

These beautiful oranges are from a recent trip to California. If anyone saw me taking close up photos of oranges, they probably wondered if I ever saw them before. Well, we don't have the privilege of having citrus growing like this in the northeast, and I always wanted to paint some in all their glory, on the trees with leaves! So, here is the first of maybe many more!

  1. Wonderful Mary Anne! I never have looked this close either and here I sit in California. I better get out there more often.
