It's a beautiful, fall day in Wisconsin and I wanted to paint something that was a reflection of that.  What could be better than three bright, sunny lemons?  Their crisp yellow color and muted background remind me of our landscape right now.  The leaves are just barely beginning to change to their yellows, oranges, and reds, and as they fall, the color of the whole landscape changes.  Done completely with a palette knife, this was a fun and challenging one to paint!

FOUR MORE DAYS!
