Oil painting Marjorie's Marmalade by Michelle Marcotte

Marjorie's Marmalade

12" x 12" Original oil. The historic home of Marjorie Kinnan Rawlings is near our Gainesville home. The curators let me pick oranges from her Saville Orange tree and in exchange I give them some orange marmalade. She is a cannon of American literature and I love her writing. Her cookbook (shown here), and her semi-autobiographical book "Cross Creek" describing her life in rural Florida in the 1940's are my favorites.  
Sold during the Gainesville Fine Arts Association Still Life show in Feb 2020.
