Still life with lemons


It's been very busy lately since this is "season" here in South Florida. We have our sales and shows while the snow birds and tourists are here. It's a window of opportunity. I had three shows to get ready for since February first. One was a show and sale where I sold 4 paintings and also received 2 awards. That felt really good! Yesterday's show garnered another award! That has left little time for painting since I was also a worker bee at these shows. In addition, our local art league is having a yard sale this week end and I started to clean out some boxes of things in the garage. One of the things I found was this little art glass vase in the shape of an elephant. I couldn't part with it so I decided to paint it in a little still life at our regular Thursday morning class. I love yellow with blue so the citrus was a easy choice to go with it.
