Lemon Still Life - January 6 - 30 Paintings in 30 Days

Lemon Still Life 8x8" oil on canvas - sold

For today's challenge I'm posting a painting that I did 3 days ago. I did 3 sketches in the studio today, but none of them worked out. Knowing what not to do next time is over half the battle.

I am picking up my skateboard halfpipe from storage tomorrow, so I'm hoping to have time to paint in the morning beforehand. I have to cut the halfpipe down, to fit a space in one of the sheds here at the farm. It's a big project. The ramp is 30 feet long, 16 feet wide, and 4 feet tall, but we are cutting it down to 12 feet wide and 3 feet tall. I built the halfpipe in January 2005, I guess that makes ten years ago. Now, I'll have a studio, and a skateboard ramp right out my front door. Painting and skateboarding work together in a way for me. When I can't look at a painting anymore, I try to go out and skate. When I'm too beat up from skating, I try to paint.
