The Naked Lemon


This one was so much fun to paint, even though it took forever, but the yellow of the lemon peel against that purple sky is just delicious, and I put it in this great big frame and it just pops.

It's funny, Mama keeps calling it the ghost lemon, because the lemon has disappeared, wheras for me it's the naked lemon, since somewhere out there the lemon that was previously wearing this is naked. I dunno. It's fun.



  1. Love the sky, the wooden shelf and the lemon peel altogether an unusual and exciting painting.

  2. thank you so much! I like that- unusual and exciting seems like a great thing for a painting to be :)
