Here's a little wedge of lemon oil painting on 5 x 5. So fun to see a grouping on stands around the house. This lemon was all sour until I started throwing some orange and red around. Then I started to feel it come alive. I'm in love with the background of purple and red orange.

I've been enjoying Donna Zagotta's blog on Heading in the Right Direction. So many times I've heard if you paint often, you'll gradually get better. Donna feels that if your not painting what you truly love and gravitate towards, you are basically painting in the wrong direction. I definitely can understand that statement.
I know what I love...color and contrast. Now, to work on improving what I struggle with and that , my friends, is a long list for another post! :).
