    Hey Jeff,
    You wont remember me but I studied next to you, briefly, with Dennis Cheaney in South Boston maybe two years ago or so..My name is Todd Bonita. I thought you were very talented, it’s great to have stumbled upon your web sight and blog, amazing stuff and very prolific. I too have a daily blog, not quite the daily painting genre but it’s my artwork every day. Check it out if you have a minute. keep doing what you’re doing, I’ll stop into your gallery when I’m in town sometime. All the best,

    That’s pretty cool, Jeff. I like the way you’ve rendered the glass and made the lemon appear to be inside it.

    Thanks Peter. Maybe, it certainly seemed fun while I was doing it.

    Hi Todd – nice to hear from you – stop in any time!

    Thanks David. It was a little tricky to paint this – being very close to a hot lamp heated the lemon, making some of its liquid evaporate. This caused condensation on the inside of the jar which kept distorting the appearance of the glass. I had to take a break every 30 minutes or so, open the jar, and let the condensation evaporate before continuing.
