Golden Light

Golden Light... warm reflections of deep yellow lemon rinds glowing with hints of orange.  The colour of the rind caught my attention, especially when it was intensified in the tin foil reflections... rays of golden sunlight.  (On March 4, I posted a different view of these wedges.)  Repositioning the lemons and using different sections of the foil along with more or less light gives me almost endless reference material for painting.
If you have any left over lemon juice after squeezing a lemon for a recipe try pouring the pure juice into individual ice cube trays and freeze.  Then, when you need some fresh lemon juice, defrost a cube or two, or, if you like to drink fresh lemon and warm water, pop a cube into a mug and add hot water.  No fuss, no muss!
