Still Life Food SeriesIt seems that the subject of lemons in a Blue Bowl is one that every artist paints at one time or the other so I decided to try one just for the fun of it and to take it out of the realm of things. To create a field of activity and interest.

Lets cook with lemons. What can we make?
Lemonade, Lemon Cake, Lemon Cookies, Lemon Chicken,
or just a beautiful still life in the middle of the dining table with a lovely
Blue Bowl of Luscious Yellow Lemons on a Bright Red Surface.

A Play on Texture: Lemons have their own grain and smooth texture. I wanted to create deep shadows and heavy texture so I used a heavily gessoed canvas hardwood panel and gessoed areas to accomplish an extreme for larger view

The Hardwood Canvas Panel is one 5/8 inch deep and looks great with all the sides with a continued finish to blend with the colors of the piece. The back panel is cradled for stability and has a wire installed. No frame necessary and ready to hang. click for larger view
