When I was doing a lot of still lifes lemons for some reason
quite fascinated me. Though I never really could
paint lemons exactly the way I saw them
in my mind’s eye, the composition
of this oil is almost perfect –
except for the peel,
the ultimate death
of all fruit and all things, and
the final deliquescence of all living
things – and that includes both you and me.
For a more ‘humanized’ version of the same notion,
you could probably do a lot worse than checking out this one.
