In North America, this is the best month for citrus IMHO.


Sorry it's not the best photo but I had these mats and figured they would just lend themselves to the fun of the color.

C&C appreciated. Barb

This is so vibrant and fresh, Barb, and it has your style written all over it! Did you just make up the background shapes or did you abstract something that was really there? (please tell us your secret ... )

Lovely colours and shapes. as ever..

03-07-2011, 05:05 PM
Oh yeah Barb!!

The title reminds me of the movie "Signs" where Mel Gibson says (while his home is being invaded by aliens), "everybody needs to calm down and eat some fruit."

This must be the aforementioned fruit, as it has made me, at least, feel better!

this is wonderful, love the color scheme:)

Love it Barb! The mats, the colors, all are wonderful!

EAT FRUIT... it helps you to see weird shapes around the fruit to abstract..

Donna - it's all in my stuffed up weird little brain... nothing was there to mimic that design shape... This time it worked. Sometimes it doesn't.

Terri - the mats were an afterthought and I just happened to have them in the studio.

Ok - now... avocados? LOL Barb

Great job on this Barb, like somebody else said, I like the freshness and vibrant colours and you have captured the translucent quality of the fruit well too.
