Satsuma / 6×6 in / oil on linen on panel / See Available Still Life Paintings

I hope everyone had a wonderful day yesterday! I had a complete blast.

I’ve started up several paintings of oranges and satsumas; this is the first to get finished. What’s it doing there? It’s sitting on brown paper. The brown paper is evading me and I’m going to make more tries at it. That’s a little piece of tape off on the far left.

  1. Jessie, I like this one just as it is! It’s very engaging: what am I seeing? A peeled orange (tangerine?) in a landscape? Is that a sail on the horizon? Am I seeing underground (in the bottom of the field)? The citrus has such a neat glow, is more realized than the “landscape”, like a dream. A simple scene transformed to cloudy symbolism.
