Meyer lemons are the color of pale oranges and are much sweeter than regular lemons. We are still snow covered with icicles hanging around the house. Painting citrus makes me feel a little warmer and reminds me that Spring is just a month or so away.
HAPPY VALENTINE'S DAY!

pears. That inspired this painting but I will admit that hers are infinitely better. I do feel very lucky to be able to look at that painting as often as I want to. She not only is a masterful painter but a very nice person.

We are in the beginnings of a snowstorm that is supposed to drop about 8" of snow by tomorrow.
I only remember one real blizzard here in my lifetime, but ever since that happened, the grocery store gets flooded with people after the first snowflakes start falling. People go to get the staples; bread, milk and cereal. So following suit, I went for our staples this morning. Beer, wine and pizza makings.

The cherries were fun to paint. The cups not so much. White is difficult because it isn't really white. It is a combination of all the colors around it and then colors show up from no obvious source. I once asked my prof. where a certain color was coming from, he said "don't worry about where it is coming from, just put it down" so I do. Thank you Kiser.
