This painting is finished! I was not expecting to be done tonight but I was on a roll with this one. This is different for me since the painting surface is more horizontal than what I'm used to working with. I enjoyed this new format so much that I'm going to be using it more often. This is also my first time painting lemons and I like how they came out. This has reestablished yellow as my favorite color. When I was a little boy yellow was my it color. I remember picking up a plastic toy mini van at a department store and it was a golden bright yellow. Very much like a cadmium yellow deep. My mother looked at it and with a sense of disapproval said "yellow?" I said, "it's my favorite color!" Right now I'm feeling just like I did then.
