Three Lemons

Acrylic on gessoboard - 16 x 20 in - 2014

Lemons represent joy and sunshine to me. The miniature lemon tree in my studio inspired this painting, although the lemons didn’t grow in exactly this configuration; I brought them together and up close to emphasize their ripeness and energy.  

I captured them using bright yellow acrylic paint on gesso board. After two layers of paint, I then added texture with acrylic polymer beads and over-painted the surface with more acrylic in a slightly more orange color for depth.
