A Lemon

A Lemon, 5" by 7", oil on linen board, January 2009
Private collection, Newtown Square, Pennsylvania

On top of juggling endless paperwork, I managed to finish a very small study of a single lemon. In these dark cold days of winter, the lemon is still fresh and zesty with brilliant color. It's no surprise that lemon yellow seems to be fairly useful with this subject.

In other news, see the lovely little painting done by Brian Eppley, of his brand new David Oleski coffee cup. Last week he was a bit under the weather, but thanks to this cup, he's feeling much better. In some ways he may possibly have even become a better painter from the challenge of studying this new and exciting subject. There's no end to the good things you can experience while enjoying your favorite beverage from an offical David Oleski coffee cup. Buy one today, or get a whole set of four and share them with your friends and family.
