This piece was painted for an entry exhibit about lemons – I decided to be me and just have fun with the piece and express myself. Lemons are sour and are considered a symbol of disappointment and faultiness, but it is also considered in some other cultures a sign of fruitfulness good fortune -for example having a lemon tree planted in your front lawn is said to bring good fortune and wealth. This painting is pretty simple, but may be interpreted in many ways. The clouds were painted pretty liberally and the lemons were painted using pointillism as well as the cloud details around them.
