Lemon with Leaves
Oil on 1.25" deep stretched canvas , 8" x 10" - SOLD
$120 (plus $7.95 shipping within U.S. via Priority Mail)
Thanks to a recent windstorm, I found this big lemon lying beneath a tree with its leaves still attached. In my studio I set it on a table against a wall, using pennies wedged underneath to keep it upright. (I love this little coin trick which I learned from Cezanne. Apparently that's how he kept his apples and oranges from rolling off the table.) I painted it larger than life. Changing the scale of an object seems to make me look at it in a new way.
