Citrus Slice With Seed

Photographer and artist, Carolyn Anctil
graciously gave me permission to paint my interpretation
 of her spectacular photo entitled "Citrus".
 I initially was intrigued by the wonderful way
the light shone through the fruit slice.
But soon I realized I couldn't do the 'light' justice in paints,
but as I studied it more, I decided to paint my work more abstracted, 
emphasizing the many "dots" of color I perceived
from the rind to the blueish shadow spots.
You can see her photo on her blog, by clicking on her name above.
