Michael Naples- Apple Orange Diptych

Oil on 1/2" Board, 3.75"x6"
"Each painting is meant to be framed separately and hang next to each other allowing each composition to compliment the other."
I thought this was an interesting play on a still life diptych. It appears as though each object is half of a whole piece of fruit, however, this is not the case. The choice to do an apple and an orange is interesting in that the audience immediately thinks of the connotation of "different as apples and oranges," even though they add together to make a complete composition.
