Heavenly Lemons

On a daily basis since the end of May, I have been doing oil paintings of people in NYC . Today I took a departure and did this still life of lemons and a little white marble angle my daughter brought me from Italy. It is in acrylic and is on canvas, unlike the oils which I do on panel. I paint the people from photos but this I painted alla prima (in one sitting) from "life." Going back to acrylics was harder than I would have expected. It is cool that it dried today and I stuck it in a lovely gold plein aire frame. I used a palette knife for the lemons, and a brush for the angel, shadows, and background. #5
