In recent years when Clementines with leaves appear in the
grocery store, I can't resist buying some to draw or paint.
The fruit reminds me so strongly of our first delightful
trip to Florence, when I took part in the Florence Biennale
in 2009. It was the first time I ever saw Clementines with
their leaves in tact, and they are beautiful.
A couple of years later the same fruit started showing up
in our local grocery stores, and I so enjoyed, buying them,
bringing them home, and putting them in a pretty bowl
to paint them. I have quite a few Clementine paintings, and
today I worked on a new one. It's a work in progress, and
I'm very happy with how it looks so far.
Have a loving your life day.
