Two Lemon Slices, 6x6 Oil

This was harder than I thought, but not for the reasons that I anticipated. I thought the hard part would be portraying the water, or perhapsthe lemon slice through the glass. What caught me up were 2 things: the inner rind of the upright lemon (couldn't get it light enough) and the base of the glass (what a myriad of lights and darks - like painting a diamond!). Well, I thought I'd intersperse regular paintings between my dog show paintings - as painting from life is what sharpens your skills.


  1. wow kelley!
    your painting is breathe taking!
    do you sell your work?

  2. Thanks Melissa! Yes, I do - they're usually $100 for the 6x6, 6x8 and 8x8's!


Awww THANKS for leaving a comment! You KNOW I love to hear from you!
