It's doing a nose dive, Martha, I think the lemon is the magician and Don just captured the moment beautifully... r.

Don Gray said...

A magician whose skills have gone sour, right Martha?

Don Gray said...

Ah, Rahina--you literally turned the lemon on its nose! It's kind of the glass half-empty or half-full thing, isn't it? It's either levitating or committing suicide!

Couldn't believe my eyes Don WOW! May I see the backside just to make sure you're not just being tricky? ;)

Looks like Rene Magritte misplaced one of his lemons. I enjoy the whimsy of it all.

Suspended lemonation!

Don Gray said...

I just paint what I see, Erika--no tricks here. :>} Thanks for stopping by.

Don Gray said...

Thanks, Rob. Yes, I couldn't help but think of Magritte while painting this.

Don Gray said...

I love that, Lu.

A friend emailed me this: "Most artists toss their "lemon" paintings or hide them in a bin, but you thought you could just float this one by us!"

I love your lemon portraits. A most challenging fruit.

R, thanks a lot. Your work is beautiful.
