Illustration Friday - Citrus

There is only one thing that I must have every day. Coffee (no surprise there). There is one thing that I must have at least every other day. Oranges (go figure). This is my first Illustration Friday submission. I tried not to take the topic too literally, but it takes time to rewire my brain!

Thanks emila, cata, lois, n, and Laurel for the wonderful and encouraging comments!

Laurel - I was a little intimidated by everyone's talent at first so didn't post on IF for a week ... but then decided, what the heck. Perhaps feedback will help me become a better artist! Thanks! and Kanoe (my dog) says thanks too!

I love your realism. Your attention to detail, but ability to be loose in the second drawing is great !
