Funny, I was wondering just the other day whether you can still get oranges and clementines wrapped in pretty papers - and there they are, in Provence at least!

Beautiful, Julian - I love the crisp fragility of the tissue paper.

These are very active clementines. The wrappers take on the image of wings. One clementine has just landed while the other is taking off. The orange color of the clementine peeking from inside its white wrapper against
the dark background is a real stopper!

Wrapped Clementines remind me of my Father...
It's a beautiful painting...thank you.

Hi Julian This is a gift of colour and light wrapped in crinkly tissue (the latter is masterful). Given that, in Toronto, we have 'fallen back' to standard time and it is dark by 5:30 pm, this painting was very welcome today.

I can hear the paper crunching! Fab Julian!!
