In February it was gray, cold, and dark. Winter is a beautiful season, but this last month just seemed a bit too dark for me. My solution was to find color. In recent months I have had fun creating still life images, but none have given me the satisfaction that this one does.
Lemons set against a blue antique pitcher, with some texture added to the final image. That is what worked for me. It brings to mind hot summer days and fresh lemonade, made from the real fruit. Taking the time to quench the thirst, and do a bit of caring for the self.
When July is here and we are all having our picnics and fighting off bugs, will we think of cold February days? I’m not so sure.
