Citrus Slices

You may remember me mentioning this summer that I helped my mom take down her hideous kitchen wallpaper and, after much drywall patching, I also helped her repaint it lime green.  She had asked me for some photographs of something citrusy, so for Mother's Day I sent her the first printing of these.  Now that it is almost her birthday, I am finally getting around to readjusting some of the color and getting test prints.  They just came in the mail yesterday, and I am so pleased with them.  I'll be sending them in black frames to mom in October.  I think she'll be pleased, too.  Here are some closer looks.

This idea has certainly been done before, but I opted to keep a sense of proportion in the size of the fruit, which is something I haven't seen before.  The circles really seemed like they should be bound in a square box, and the result makes for the first square prints that I'll be offering in my Etsy shop.


  1. These are deliciously refreshing! Great work! Your mom will be pleased as they should look very cool on the lime green wall.
    Well done
