When life gives you lemons, you paint the lemons. I am really starting to enjoy doing these little still life pictures. For me they are a great exercise in all the skills of painting. I am not at all worried about if the painting will turn out good or not. I am simply trying to capture what I see, and can really focus on color, value, edges, texture and drawing.
