Citrus Botanical Prints

Having fun today playing with citrus and butterflies. I love painting fruits… especially citrus.  My father was from the beautiful, tropical island Puerto Rico.  At a very young age (around 4th grade) he had to drop out of school to help support his family due to the death of his father.  His job was to stand on street corners and sell oranges. He said he ate as many oranges as he sold but I guess it carried him through those tough times.Dad grew up and earned his Masters in Education. He was a wonderful father!We always had oranges in our house.
