Lemons are featured in most of my paintings from the past few weeks

They had some very beautiful specimens so I bought a few and then made some lemon pound cake. The last painting here is a simple plate with grapes and orange slices. Lighting makes the scene dramatic.

A Few Plein Air Paintings from May

It has rained for much of this month but I have still found time to go out and push some paint.

Julie- 16" x 20"

I began this portrait from life in a workshop and it was 90% finished when I brought it home, but I used a photograph I had to add some detail and make corrections. Looks better now.
