Hello! Well, here it is Monday, March 25, 2013 here in
and last night it snowed 3 inches and
is still snowing and here I am thinking about Lemonade. I know the snow will be gone by Easter
Sunday and I had planed on serving Lemonade to friends, but I will go ahead and
post this Lemonade painting any way...Maybe we will have hot Lemonade, Ha Ha. Virginia
My daughter shops for me and she enjoys selecting the Lemons that I paint from the produce section of our grocery store, she not only selects the best looking Lemons but I photographed the lemons then use the photo for a reference in my painting...
When I cut the Lemons they were so juicy that I could see the juice dripping from them and I tried to capture that look in my painting. Doesn't it make your mouth water just to think about drinking a cold glass of lemonade made from these lemons. My Fine Art Prints from my lemon painting can be purchased here. So how about kicking your shoes off and relaxing for a while with me while you go to my Etsy shop; www.etsy.com/shop/DessieFullTimeArtistwww.etsy.com/shop/DessieFullTimeArtist to browse.

If you are an art collector or just starting to draw or create art, or are a professional artist, please COMMENT on this blog and tell me your story…add your 2 cents worth. If I can answer questions I will do my best to answer.
It is my wish that this blog will bring collectors and artisans together and we will be able to communicate with each other as we paint with our dreams, memories, history and myths and we will search out answers to some expert tips, videos and tutorials to help us along the way.
I too, will always be seeking ways to improve on the art that I do and hope you will enjoy following me on Dessie's Eclectic Oil and Acrylic Still Life Works of Art:
