I walk by this work every day in my front hallway.
And it is one of many paintings I've done of oranges,
lemons and limes.  In the depths of winter, especially during
the short, dark days, the brilliance of citrus fruits in one
of my footed glass bowls is a cheering sight.

In fact my son says that one day these are the pieces
I'll be known for.  So today as I work away on another
painting -- large and slow, I offer you the fruits of my labour --
a painting that gave me great pleasure to paint, honouring
the beautiful oranges, lemons, and limes that brighten our

Have a loving what you see day.
