Still Life with Three Lemons, Red Check Tablecloth

" Lemons & Check Cloth "
Open Edition $60
This is an archival giclee reproduction (giclee is French for ink spot. A high quality digital image of the original painting is printed on a large ink jet printer. Archival inks and quality canvas or papers are used.) I have a wonderful publisher here in Idaho that has produced my work for many years. If you visit my main web site you can see many more giclees of still life ( 3 other 12"x12" images that go with the Lemons) and animals. The original painting was an oil and is in a private collection.
Giclee ( soft g gee-clay)
Please email me if you have any questions or want to place an order

Those lemons look like I could pick them right up! Beautiful, and very well done, including the tablecloth - you are a very brave, and skilled, artist!

Thanks, Kelly. I prefer my current lemons over these as I have gotten somewhat looser, my goal that I find so challenging! When you say brave, I'm guessing you are referring to the check table cloth. Tackling patterned fabric is a matter of taking the time to study the values/pattern seen. Some do cause my eyes to cross!

Thanks, Mary. The other day my husband used a big squeeze of Meyer lemon juice + some honey in hot water. If you haven't tried Meyer lemons, they are somewhat sweet and a hint of orange. It's hard for me to cut them open..they are so beautiful to look at! I usually wait til they begin to shrivel.
