A Mandarin Orange

A Mandarin Orange, oil on linen board, 5" by 7", March 2008,
Private collection, Prior Lake, MN

In the final hour of sunlight yesterday I carved out this little study of a peeled mandarin orange. I was surprised to see how vivid and bold some of the colors are as the slice is glowing with luminosity from behind. Today I started working on a little Easter surprise.
