Lemons and Limes, 114 SOLD
Been on the road again, this time to Nashville for Chris Isaak. My friends band, The Wrights, opened for him at the Ryman. It was a great show. If you like well written country music that has lots of harmonies and air, you would love the Wrights. Adam and his wife Shannon are incredibly talented. You can find most of their music on iTunes. It was a whirlwind, as usual, up on Wednesday, back on Thursday... Dinner at Margot's and breakfast at Marche. I also got a couple of great pictures of some Googie Art signs for my collection.
To make up for lost time, I did 3 paintings today, studies of whole lemons and limes. Tomorrow I will cut them up and play around with thim. This piece is the first. I really like the neutral lilac color in the background of this piece. I usually don't do that to often, I tend to lean towards more pure color, but I also like to mix things up a bit. Pleased with the outcome here.
