Pomegranates are one of my favorite fruits and you can find them all over Tucson, so I decided to create a painting of pomegranates and threw some pomegranate flowers in there for good measure. The flowers are this amazing vibrant orange and beautiful in their own right. I added some text because I think it would look great in a kitchen or restaurant or juice bar. The blue background compliments the orange and red quite nicely.
