Oh the Oranges

Oranges are one of my favorite fruits: they taste like sunshine, they’re durable and transportable, and here in California they’re cheap and have a long season—what’s not to like? During the winter, we get ours in 10 lb bags from our favorite fruit-grower at the farmer’s market. Every week we haul one of those bags home and enjoy every last citrus-y drop. I’m surprised I didn’t think of this one earlier, but the letter “o” was stumping me for my natural patterns alphabet until yesterday.

Looking at pictures of oranges (sadly, it isn’t orange season anymore—so I didn’t have a real live model), I noticed another one of my favorite things inside: triangles. I must have noticed this before, but the inside of an orange is a circle of triangles! How beautiful! So, I drew this very simple interpretation.
