Longans and Tea

When I was getting my nails done, my nail lady asked if I had ever tried Longan fruit. I hadn't. She gave me a nice clump of them. What an interesting fruit. The inside looks like an eyeball and is often called a dragon eye. They are closely related to the Lychee. I decided they needed to be painted before being consumed. "Longans and Tea" 12x12 oil on canvas. This was painted from life.
