What inspired this piece? I really like stripes (and dots) and I wanted to paint some lemons, si I felt this piece of fabric from Mom's stash would make a good background for the lemons. This week has been pretty productive as far as painting goes. The laundry and housework has piled up but I have finished two big pieces and started another. It isn't in my nature to paint very fast but I've really been pushing myself to go a little faster. I have a tendency to paint every leaf. These big pieces are intended for the upcoming Roanoke Sidewalk Art Festival. Anyway , if you want purchase info for the LEMONS on ebay click HERE.
