The orange in this painting was sitting on decorative fabric. When I finished the painting, the orange appeared like it was flying through the universe on a magic carpet....hence...the title Magical Orange.

Besides being a good source of vitamin C, here is some more information about the wonderful orange...

Orange trees are a symbol of love and marriage in many cultures. Oranges are sometimes found in Renaissance paintings of married couples. One of the most famous is Jan van Eyck's "Wedding Portrait of the Arnolfini".
Brides traditionally wear orange blossoms in their hair or carry them in their bouquet at their wedding. Orange blossoms are often part of the decoration on a wedding cake.
Queen Victoria was given a coronet of gold and enamel orange blossoms by her husband Albert. When their children were born, he had a jeweler add tiny green oranges to the coronet.

Today's Quotation: "Failure is the opportunity to begin again more intelligently."
