When Life Gives You Lemons

Oil Painting Alla Prima Lemon Slices
Lemon Slices (oil, 5×7)

my friends says: When Life gives you lemons
smile politely
then just throw them away when Life isn’t looking!

i say: Paint them first!

Thanks, Life!

Here is the first block in:
Oil Painting Alla Prima Lemon Slices WIP1

Tweaking the color:
Oil Painting Alla Prima Lemon Slices WIP2

Almost there:
Oil Painting Alla Prima Lemon Slices WIP3

you will notice my signature is there
before the painting is “finished”.

i feel that the signature is part of the painting
and needs to be considered for
placement, color, weight during the painting process.

IMHO
i have seen many paintings that i think are almost ruined
by what i would call poorly done signatures.
