Blood Orange I

Blood Oranges remind me of the Oscars that were on last night.  If you watched the show you will remember the tribute to the horror movie genre... along with the famous screams, chain saws and knife scenes came fake blood.  When I sliced through this blood orange the juice trickled out onto the cutting board... a watery blood colour that screamed horror flick.  And yet, when I positioned these segments on tin foil and shone a nice bright light on them they looked like colourful props for a carnival.

Imagination running wild... blood oranges to horror flicks to carnivals...
Who really knows where writers find their material?

Oh my goodness...these are so delicious! All those great, vivid dark reds and oranges look divine reflected in the foil. My favorite of your foil paintings!
