Luscious Lemons - 6" x 6" - Oil on Linen Panel - Available here
Day 13 of the Strada Easel 31 day painting challenge. Knowing that we usually go out to eat on Friday nights, I decided to paint today's painting at lunchtime. I grabbed some tacos, thinking I might paint the front of Taco Deli, but it was way too dark, and not it's usual interesting self. The lemons were my backup plan, and I really enjoyed painting them... even though the ice melted as I painted and the lemon slice completely changed position in the balmy 76 degrees.
Patricia Butler loves to paint. Living and working in Austin, Texas, she is drawn to the beauty around her and the challenge of capturing the essence of the scene before her. She counts herself very blessed to be living in Austin, which is a vibrant, growing city, and, with its multitude of lovely parks and nearby lakes and hill country, it presents endless inspiration. She is a founding member of Plein Air Austin, and enjoys painting with the group any chance she gets.
