In the middle of the night a few weeks ago, I woke up with thought that I needed to do a “long hanging fruit” series of paintings and laughed outloud (prompting a grunt and a kick from my sleeping husband). I have no idea why. But, being the weirdo that I am, instead of just going back to sleep, I started sketching and plotting. We’ll see if this actually turns into a full series, or just stops at this painting, but it makes me giggle nonetheless. If life hands you lemons, paint them.
