Yellow Cup with Tangerine

4"x6" oil on gessoed door skin. This little yellow cup had light bouncing around all over it. Maybe that's why it is fun to paint. The tangerine is really small, I should say was really small. It was the last of my tangerines, so I couldn't wait until after I posted this to eat it. I don't know how it even survived the painting session. I was having an inner debate about the possibility of painting it from memory. Somehow, while this decision making process was going on, I finished the painting.
