Lemon challenge

Lemons....and lemon water from Earthfare...these are really odd enormous lemons..the one on the right almost has a tripod under it from bumps on the lemon...and they are just huge...i was going to pick up a third lemon when i was at Publix today...theirs were half the size of Earthfares and they were not organic and they were NOT cheaper than the Earthfare lemons

OH about that cup...ummm i glued it on ...didnt like the big stenopad that was the right hand side before i added the cup...my grandmother is famous in family legend for cutting out an eye and adding it to a picture so i thought why not...well i can tell you why not...DONT use so much glue it oozes out under the cup!!:>

Your lemons are beautifully done.

nice drawing (and collage... love the cup idea. It makes the piece very dynamic)

I cut things out and paste them into drawings I don't like too.

I wouldn't even have noticed had you not pointed it out! And nice lemons you drew there!

I use 300 pound watercolor paper...a little pricey as compared to 140 but you can erase mistakes, start all over. you can correct your mistakes..all of the teachers I have had...recommend using 300 pound because every painting can be fixed...I even cut up a 300 pound paper and made my own sketch pad with it,

Big lemons must be the latest fad because I have seen them mentioned in other blogs, interesting.

Ok, other interesting 'thing', your grandmother would cut out eyes and just glue them anywhere on a picture? [in my minds eye i pictured this woman carfully gluing cut out eyes over the 'red-eye' in older photos...]
