One Lemon, 5 inches by 7 inches, December 2012
Sold! Private collection, Wilmington, Delaware
When the day turned surprisingly warm and sunny, it was hard not to appreciate the zestful lemony freshness of a fresh lemon. Typically I would circle around and around a lemon with brushwork to coax volume and depth from within the shape, whereas today I just laid in some knifework to build the form like only so much brickwork. Of course it was zestful lemony fresh brickwork.
