Still Life of Fruit, Tangerine Trail, Kim Blair

It's the time of year when we start to see bags and boxes of tangerines arriving in the supermarket.  Yesterday I purchased them in a net bag, but usually I prefer the boxes.  There is something extra special about each piece of fruit when it is wrapped individually. Little squares of paper protecting tangerine treasures.  Orange globes filled with sweet juicy flesh, covered with a dimpled rind...  a pleasure to paint as well as eat.
