Green Oranges

These are two green oranges that I picked from a beautiful orange tree we have. In summer it is on our terrace and in winter in our kitchen and we usually enjoy delicious, sweet, juicy fruit from it. Last summer though was not as hot and sunny as it normally is, so that most of the fruits unfortunately didn't manage to ripen.
Now we have finally picked them and for painting they are great!

Hi Liza,

The contrast and balletic pose of the
oranges and their graceful leaves arcing up into the dark, set off by the pink and purple is stunning. So joyful. I love it.
