Traditional Lemons

I just finished a more traditonal looking lemon still-life. Its 12 x 12 - which I guess is not a traditional format. I placed the glass almost dead center and flanked it with lemons. Click on it to see it bigger.

I've been spending a lot of mental energy on trying to figure out what to do as a sequel to my Zen piece. Search my blog for the word Zen if you are not familiar with it. I've come up with some good ideas I think... but will not know for sure until I sit down with the model - hopefully this weekend I can do that. I did get some really bad ideas pop into my head too... like having her lean over in the same pose but instead of a stack of rocks in front of her, place a very tall sandwich or scoops of leaning icecream. See I said it was bad! I did have a couple of good ones however and hopefully I can work with my model soon.

Beautiful Nicole. is it oil or acrylic?
Even the glass in the middle makes this so well balanced.
Great Job.

Hello Nicole! I really like the composition. Your work is fabulous. Look forward to seeing what you follow Zen up with. That is an amazing piece of art!

Great to see you back! This is beautiful and I love seeing the square format being used (well;^). Can't wait to see what you have up your sleeve for the follow-up to Zen!

I hope you had a wonderful holiday!

I love these lemons and the format. So glad to see you posting again. Hey, as far as ideas go....I always have about a dozen bad ones for every good one. :-)

Welcome back!
The piece is so beautiful, and I had a big smile while reading your 'bad ideas' for the zen sequel :)
Best regards,
