Juicy Stuff" is based on DIEtte Hendersons, Orange Slices
I loosened this up considerably, and made the reds more intense, allowing the colour to pour freely over the edges…this is more in the realm of abstract realism, so I carried it much further by leaving the slices incomplete and carrying one right out of the picture plane …

We make other plans.
A day is like an orange;
We squeeze moments and
Memories from each one
While worrying whether
Our glass is half-full or half-empty.
Some drink their fill of
The juice of opportunity;
Careless others spill theirs,
Staining the carpet of their lives.
The sweetest juice is found
In moments spent with you;
Such times are gently squeezed,
Flowing into the mouth of my heart,
Where they remain forever.
Whenever Life happens,
I think of you and know our moments
Are a sweet vintage waiting for us. R.Blackwell
