Oranges are one of my favorite fruits and I eat one nearly every day. I get a little pushy sometimes with my family, encouraging them to eat citrus. Don't get me started on all the health benefits of citrus fruits.
 I am also fond of some other members of this category including grapefruit and, my special favorite, kumquats, which I always buy at Christmas time when they are plentiful in the stores.  If you are not familiar with these little gems, they are to be popped into your mouth without peeling and to my way of thinking they are the fruit equivalent of a "Sweet Tart" candy. No one else in my family enjoys them, however the up side is that I never have to share.


  1. Love this composition and the angular shape of the oranges. Kumquats....we eat them by washing and boiling in sugar syrup...not so healthy but so delicious.

  2. This pops with color and personality. Love the color. Never had a kumquat but it sounds like my kinda fruit. Happy painting.
