Limes on Red

These limes on a piece of rich mottled red fabric have character.  The brownish sections on the green rind are marks that create the uniqueness of each lime.  Smooth, flawless, bright green skin is the sign of a fresh lime... but where is the individuality of the fruit?
Sometimes too perfect is too boring to paint.
