Golden Lemons

These lemons wedges have a deep yellow rind with a hint of orange revealed in certain lighting, and once placed upon foil the reflection glowed.  You might think they are sitting on gold or copper foil, rather than on the silver surface of the tin foil.  Being an artist may be similar to being a magician.  Artist have the tools to offer you a different view... one never knows what we will pull out of our hats!

"Reality is merely an illusion, albeit a very persistent one." Albert Einstein.

Some of us at DPIAG (Daily Painters International Art Gallery), an art blog that I post to besides my own blog, participated in a fun art challenge.  Each month Madison, (the wonderful woman who created DPIAG blog) will offer us an art challenge.  Anyone (even if you do not belong to DPIAG) may paint a version of the challenge and send it to Madison, and if you followed the rules she will publish your art under the challenge section of DPIAG.  Please check out those of us who tried our hand at the March challenge.
It was fun to stretch outside my comfort zone... Next month will be fun, since I love stripes!

I am enjoying your progress as you paint on the aluminum foil. This painting is beautiful!
