Lemons, by feel







We had a great, great art class yesterday. Our exercise was to close our eyes and pick up a piece of fruit and just feel it. Both ends, the middle, the smell, the shape, the bumps and bruises.
Then paint without looking again at the piece of fruit.
Awesome!
Fun to do.
Wonderful results from the whole class!
And this that you see is my version of the essence of a lemon.......or two.
