Citrus - Illustration Friday

I love citrus. Lemons, limes and oranges in particular. All summer long, I drink lemonade mixed with either seltzer water or iced tea. So refreshing!!

I call this illustration "Greek Lemons" because to me, it brings to mind a Greek countryside, olives, and a big Greek feast. I don't know exactly why, for it could just as easily be a Tuscan countryside, or any other number of different geographically-placed countrysides... Either way, I don't mind it... I love different places, and honestly, all places are inspiring in their own way, have something inspiring to offer... So, this could be a countryside in your own favorite place. The catch: you just have to like lemons..:)

Enjoy!

This is such a beautiful illustration. The colors are lovely, and yes, it has a sunny rustic feeling to it. How sublime!

*Talking about lemon, limes, etc. --- have you ever tasted Island Banana bread? It has lime juice and rind in it.

wonderful illustration. I could see it being used for the label on a crate of lemons; or a jar or lemon marmalade (do they make lemon marmalade??? they should!)
