Of particular interest to me are the seeds beneath the skin of the segments as the light shines through them.

Orange you glad this painting isn't too seedy? It definitely has a peal! Its beauty is more than skin deep. Nice piece(s) Jeanne. (Sorry about the puns)

OMG, Mark!!! ...and I thought I was a punster! You have me beat with four...no five puns here! :o) Thanks for your comments! Best, Jeanne

Jeanne, While the painting really rang my bell (a peal), it also has a peel. (So much for being clever on Sunday morning.) All that said, I do love this new painting.

Thank you so much, Mark! Nice "cover" on the peal vs. peel!! ...You're quite witty for a Sunday morning! (I know I'm not, although I've been painting for two hrs. already!) Always delightful to hear from you! Jeanne
