Your painting is wonderful, Michael. I'm quite blown away by the drama and elegance you got with a simple fruit. It's an amazing lemon!

My interpretation of spring would have been swollen, itchy eyes from these allergies :) Love this one, and wish we could keep it..

Love the painting Michael, I went to college in Sarasota at the Ringling College of Art and Design. Really miss the beaches down there, and sunny weather! Great painting again Michael! By the way where can one see the challenges that you talk of, I would love to be a part of it!

Very simple composition on this one. The colors and placement make this still life feel kind of somber to me.

Love the shadow on the wall!

This painting is just beautiful! Your subject is painted with depth and beautiful color. The shadow is lovely and adds much to the composition. Love it!!

Michael, I lurk here more than comment... but I always enjoy seeing your new paintings. This lemon is so beautiful against all the warm neutrals in the background, lovely job.
