On Saturday I had the most wonderful experience! Two artist friends and I went to an Orange Festival in Redlands put on by the Inland Orange Conservancy. Located in an orange grove full of blossoms, it was an aromatherapy painting session! If that wasn't enough, we tasted about 30 different citrus fruits, and went home with bags full of free tree ripened oranges, tangelos and lemons. Above is my work for the day...a 1948 Chevy loaded with wooden orange crates. The sun was in and out, so that was a bit tricky, but I really loved all the different colors on the truck and I'm happy with the result.
