Lemon Zest

I'm beginning to love lemons. You really have to pay attention to their shape and subtle color. I was trying to paint shades of yellow which wasn't working so may this will be a series until I really get it right. So, how do I paint lemons? Let me count the ways...gee, that sounds familiar. Anyone else out there stealing lines from poetry?

The beginning

I'm doing a lot of things I haven't done in the past. Normally, you would never see an unfinished painting in my blog. They change and morph into other things or beings. This little guy is wearing a cookie tin as his hat so I thought you would like to the the first stage of this painting. Nothing is finished, just little blobs of color waiting to be reckon with. Have you stepped outside your comfort level recently? Sure, I want to hear about it!

Stepping out!

The title sounds like a song, but with all the sunshine, weather getting warmer, thought I would try a different direction and, just step out! This painting would certainly do with a little cleaning up but then I get all neat and tidy and would clean it up to death so, I'm leaving it and will do better on the next one. What say you?

It's March 1st.

It's March 1st and I am ready for flowers. This painting isn't nearly as bright as shown here but maybe you will think spring and getting out in the yard. At our house my husband goes out to the yard, I just paint the end product. So, what are you doing today? I do hope someone answers me soon, I feel as though I am talking to myself...ok, I do that also.
