Lemon Basket-Day 2


10" x 8" Oil on Canvas Board
This was a real challenge, all that YELLOW! Not only the lemons, but the basket was in the yellow family.  My biggest focus is the "mechanics of painting" that I studied in Italy with Jerry Fresia.  I just love the process, the place you go in your head!  It should be about the joy of painting.  Jerry said if you let yourself enjoy the process without worry of the end product, your painting will be successful.  But I always tell my students, you learn more from your mistakes than you success.....painting is a journey!
