Real Lemon On A Nice Plate
Oil on gessoed board
A friend gave me some lemons from her tree. I think she was a bit put out that I decided to paint what was probably the worst pick of the bunch! Literally the "real lemon" . Or is that metaphorically the real lemon...? Anyhoo, I painted it because I found it interesting. I was fascinated by the spiral shape in towards the stem. I guess it's blighted quality is emphasised by the fact that I chose to present it on a "nice plate".
