The Lemons

$99.99

This is one of my first oil paintings; the vibrant lemons cut open to show the subtle flesh and fresh juice. The liquid is either sweet or sour. Life too can be both sweet and sour; with its highs and lows, its joy and sadness. So often we want only the sweetness, but often the fruit is sour.

Made To Order

Every art print is custom made when an order is placed. Please give us 3-5 business days to process the order, manufacture at our print shop and safely send it to you.

Included Border

All art prints come with a 1″ (2.5cm) white border around the artwork; the print size you order will come in a slightly larger paper size. If you want to frame your print, then you’ll probably need extra paper to fix behind the frame to hold the artwork in place.

About Giclée

Home, and some commercial, printers use only four ink colors. Giclée printers can use eight or more ink colors to create extra smooth gradations, brighter and ore accurate colors, and sharper details thanks to higher resolutions. The ink used is fade-resistant and archival. Under ideal conditions the ink can last over 100 years!

I print on professional-quality paper made by Hahnemüle in Germany. They’ve been producing paper for over 400 years! This paper has a smooth finish, making it ideal for professional art prints.

Bonus Charity Donation

For every order that’s made, I donate 10% of profit to charities to help protect who and what we love. You can read more about it under the Frequently Asked Questions.

Description

In this painting I explore how we perceive food, aiming to have the viewer feel the hunger and desires that others feel. I spent a long time painting these lemons and limes to look realistic, with mouth-watering colours and shaping. So many of us take fresh fruit and vegetables for granted, often discarding less than perfect or overripe pieces. Sadly, not everyone is this blessed. Many go hungry each mealtime and desire these less-than-adequate pieces of fruit. In fact, there are people who have never even seen a lemon or a lime! 10% of all profits from this art print will be going to charity.
