More on a food theme

As the virtual Food For Thought reception is tomorrow night between
5 and 7 Pacific Time, I thought I'd stay on the food theme.  As I write
this I'm sitting at our kitchen table, where my husband Steven and I
eat dinner by candlelight almost every night that we're home.  I'm sure
I mentioned before that my son Christopher told me that a bowl of 
fruit was a great way to decorate the table, even if you have no flowers.

So this painting is not in the current show. It is of the centrepiece on our
much used pine two board table. So beloved. We can see one another over
the lemons, and we keep them fresh and cheerful. I love painting things
that have meaning to me. These lemons have been a cheery sight on cold
winter nights, during hard times, and celebratory at the best of times. The
Food For Thought exhibition which opened on June 1, is about what I
would call the best of times.  If you are interested in attending the Zoom reception
 contact me and I'll send you the link.

Have an enjoying your joyous moments day.

Thank you so much Evelyn,

I am staring at a very similar bowl of lemons right now as I write this.
Love your work.
