I finished this painting a few weeks ago and then began the one shown below, which is still a work in progress, as an accompanying piece. These pieces are a compilation of different bird photos and the orange. I'm photographing the orange on my mantle to take advantage of the light on the form. It is reasonable that a half peeled orange would be inside on a surface. But, unreasonable that two Orioles would be there having a conversation. Maybe next I'll have a tea cup in a tree.
