Why this, why now? Well, because I'm in the midst of producing a bunch of black and white images for an illustration job and I NEEDED COLOR! This sketch of a bowl of oranges, limes, lemons and a tangerine or two dates from my April trip to Santa Barbara. I was staying with an amazing, talented, and accomplished businesswoman who, on top of all that aforementioned good stuff, had practically a whole citrus orchard in her own yard! Can you imagine? Not only does she have access each year to the heavenly fragrance of orange and lime blossom, but she gets the fruit, too! Every day! For breakfast, for lunch, for dinner!
