A little tradition; a little inspiration

Meyer Lemons are at Trader Joes and Costco.  If you are not hooked on the juicy sweetness of these wonderful fruits you should get some.  First of all they are beautiful to look at, not that cool lemon yellow for these lemons, no, they have a bit of orange in the skin.  They pose so nicely in the blue bowl.  They are gone now but live on in my traditional still life painting.

Symphony in Orange = pure play again.  Started with my usual mess in various colors and thought about black as a pure dark.  After that it was a bit of orange and green until I thought Spring flowers.  I was actually thinking about the Primroses waiting for me to plant them, but Toni says oh no, Calendula and Ligularia in background.   I wasn't representing a plant exactly, just thinking happy plants and lovely colors.  Both are painted on gessoed paper and mounted on board with a dark background.  Happy painting, Pat

  1. Love your symphony in Orange. Great vibrant colors. Looks like you've been hard at work.

    Made some changes to my own blog. Would love your input. Oh and if you want to "follow it" would be forever grateful.

    Thanks, grams. Enjoy your day, we've got no school today with lots and lots of icy streets.
