Peeled Orange


Several artists whose work I admire have painted a peeled orange. I decided that this was a challenge I would take on. I placed it on an old vintage doily that I have had for many years. By the way, you just don't see doilies in homes very often anymore. This doily is croched in a cream colored thread. The orange was fun to paint. The light illuminated the orange flesh and looked as though it glowed. It took a number of hours over several days to capture what I wanted. The orange is pretty shriveled.
