Holiday Fruit Tree

Or Procrastination as an Art Form 2

To create some semblance of a holiday vacation I won't be working for the next three days. That means I start doing all the things I neglect most of the time like dishes, laundry, vacuuming, dusting and the like in between long bouts of sitting on my okole in front of this screen.

Tis the season for picking oranges and I thought I would make some fresh squeezed organic orange juice for my Sunday morning get together. After picking and washing the fruit one of those tangential thoughts I am prone to came to fruition.



















Like a Tibetan Monk Sand Painting my little Holiday Fruit Tree will be ephemeral.




















By tomorrow it will be sweet juice.

Nicely done.

If Cy Twombly can be famous for "painting" chalk boards and Marcel DuChamp for "sculpting" a stool and wheel, I actually see great potential for a Hawiian Gardener - Artist - Philosopher who "creates" in local fruit.

I think you are onto something here.

Happy holidays
