These lemon slices really glowed under this light and I tried hard to capture that. My favorite part though is the front "white" bit on the left-most slice where it's fairly gray and just a little bit of white up at the top. I go a little nutty over these kinds of details. In fact there was a point a few years ago when I realized I was trying so hard to get these little "happy moments" in my paintings I was ignoring the over-all design. That's part of why doing these small paintings has been so tranforming for me - it's hard NOT to focus on the over-all design when you're looking at a 6x6 canvas.
