Green Orange, Watercolor, 9×12″, Jean Krueger, 2017
This orange will be ripe in about 2 months. The tree grows in the backyard of our apartment and is about 50 years old. It’s nearing the end of its productive life, it bears fewer oranges each year. We still love the tree and will let it stand when there’s no more fruit. It provides midday shade under the hot Arizona sun.
