Luscious Lemons, oil on canvas, 12"x12". Giant lemons grew in the backyard of my childhood home in San Diego. Lemons trees were everywhere. Big lemons, pointy ones, dried out ones, baby ones, etc, etc. Who ever thought it was possible to take lemons for granted? Now that I live in Colorado, I miss having the lemon and orange trees in my backyard (wait, I miss having a backyard too!). Growing up in Southern California we took fresh fruit as a normal part of life, year round. It was great and fresh. Those Californians have it made! Aaah, who knew learning to make fresh lemonade would be such a handy skill later in life?
