Lime Light

Limes (like the mango) are native to Southeast Asia.  They are most prominent in tropical regions, while lemons are the major acid citrus fruits in the subtropics.  Although limes will ripen to an orange colour if left on the tree, they are always picked green.  In the past, the British navy harvested limes from India and  Southeast Asia to supplement their sailors' rations to help prevent scurvy.

I would like to think that hanging this lime painting in your home might help to prevent boredom by bringing a little bit of Lime Light to your Life... a ration of visual vitamin C

8x10 oil on canvas, (needs a bit more drying time before harvesting...)
