Lemon Tree?

Well I finished this a couple weeks ago, but I'm not sure the title is right now. I had to to leave it since I entered it in a competition with that title. Now, it seems very feminine and almost like an aging woman. Someone else pointed that out to me. Sometimes things happen in a painting that the painter isn't fully conscious of. I actually like that. Sometimes.

I've noticed your postings and I like your work very much! Clever use of the old woods with the smooth finish of the veggies and fruits.

I'm working on painting my version of a lemon tree. I'm new to oils and have the underpainting done. Scared for the next step, but after looking at your photos of your progress I'm ready to get back to work. I love the composition of your piece. Great work! Thanks for posting your pictures in sequence of creation. Helps me a lot!
