"Silver Spoon and Lemon"
Oil on panel, 5 x 6 inches (12 x 15 cm)

A small spoon resting against a lemon makes for an unusual composition, but when I started positioning them together, I knew I wanted to find a way to make them work. Obviously, I also spent a lot of time capturing the exact textures and disfigurations on the lemon.

(Pardon the double posting of this painting. I'm not sure why that happened, but I'll leave them both as each has comments)
