Something about lemons and oil painting...

I don't know why exactly, but lemons are one of the prettiest things to paint. The light and shadow temperatures are easy to see, and harmonize so nicely. I don't even think about the sour pucker power they stimulate at other times. In painting, they just seem beautiful, fresh, and sunny. Must be the color, texture, and smell that I enjoy.

Was working towards a higher keyed painting with this couple... loved the extra little blossom too. Computer insisted on making the background more blue than aqua, but the painting looks quite nice in a gold frame. Might have to hang this one for myself.
