It is rather chilly weather here, but painting these lemons made me think of warm, bright sunshiny weather.

As a matter of fact, I painted two versions – one in my natural controlled style and the other in a splashy loose style.

  1. Thanks so much! What, you made your own Limoncello? We visited Italy a few years ago I looked forward to a few sips of this after most meals. I have bought it but never thought of making it myself. Was it difficult? Cheers!!

  2. No, easy ingredients: Lemon rind w/o the white pulp, vodka, sugar and marinate for several weeks. I used the 80 day recipe from All recipes.com. We serve it for special occasions since the alcohol content is strong with all the sugar added to the vodka.

  3. I rather like the nice, controlled painting. It’s soothing to look at somehow. I need soothing things now with holiday and bazaar craziness πŸ™‚

  4. I think I like the first one best but they both are super, Carol! I think the background really shows off your lemons in the first one. The second one reminds me of making a cool glass of lemonade! πŸ‹πŸŒžπŸŒ»
