More Lemons . . .

SOLD

Yes, this one is sold.  I have a deep passion for painting lemons, did I ever say that? I do.  Each time I paint them I learn something new too, which compels me to paint more.  In fact, I did paint more today.  I have so many lemons in the house.  I might bake a lemon cake, with lemon icing.  Yum.

I'll be back tomorrow to share the other lemon painting.  Thanks for stopping by.  :-D

Lemons!!!

I love to paint lemons, I cannot lie! I still hate how the Blogger photo uploader makes photos look.  This photo looks much better on my website and on eBay.  Psst, there are close up shots on eBay too. I attached the link to my "Me" page below the photo.

But it is true, lemons have become a favorite of mine to paint.  I've got a couple of larger projects on the go right now, but I think I'm going to paint a much larger still life with lemons.  Like a 24 x 24, or maybe even larger.  That would be something!

Hope you like this one!

Still Life with Lemons and Water


Lemon Water
8 x 10 Oil

This painting was started Sunday and completed today.  As I said, I was taking more time with my work now rather than do daily paintings.  I'm much more satisfied with my paintings now even though they're still done relatively quick.  With a painting such as this one, I would really prefer at least one full week's worth of work to refine details.  This one was detail intensive but I had to limit myself.  I might still do a painting in a day every now and then, but for now, I'm happy with this.  I hope you are too.

This is now up on eBay.

Cup & Lemons

The weather was so beautiful all last week but turned brutally cold today, with gusting northern winds.  It was a perfect day for tea with maybe a bit of lemon.  Actually, I never drink lemon in my tea but I do so love to paint them.  I love so many things with lemon, lemon meringue pie, cakes, cookies, lotions, soaps . . . What's not to love about zingy fresh lemons? Their bright cheeriness warms one on a winter's day, so they did manage to warm me even without adding any to my tea.

If you like this one, it's now up on eBay.  I think I have a lot of apples laying around the kitchen . . .

Royal Albert Tea Cup and Lemon Daily Painting


Royal Albert & Lemon

I'm back.  I took a week off from painting last week getting ready for and giving art workshops to about 75 students from all over the province of Ontario.  The event, Vision Art, (sorry, link in French only) was held at Laurentian University in Sudbury and put on by the Conseil Scolaire Catholique du Nouvel Ontario for over 200 students.  Activities took place over a three day period and I must say that I was so impressed with the talent the students exhibited.  I was also very honoured to be selected to be on this team, instructing art to our youth, our future leaders. Each and every one of those kids were amazing and it was a real joy to work with them.

Now, my first painting this week was inspired by a Royal Albert tea cup I found at a vintage shop in Toronto's Distillery District.  It was exactly what I had been looking for so I couldn't pass it up when I saw it.  Who could leave behind such a beautiful cup?

This is now up on eBay for bids if you're interested.  Thanks for stopping by!

Bag of Lemons Daily Painting Still Life

For today's daily painting, I was in the mood for cheery, yellow lemons.  This is of course painted alla prima, and I find yellow paint tricky when painting alla prima.  I'm quite satisfied with how this finally turned out and I love the mood in this piece.  I hope you like it too.  It's now up on eBay.
