Chinese Take-Out with Mandarin Oranges

Oil on canvas panel, 8x6--SOLD
Sometimes I crave Chinese take-out! Recently, while gorging myself on chicken fried rice, I was mesmorized by the box. These waxy works of "art" were originally used as oyster pails! Oysters were shucked by pros, then packed into these containers for transport home by housewives. Who knew?
