This oil painting resulted from a computer generated image that I designed for the Born to Draw Children’s Art Drawing Program. The computer image was to be a demo from the Matisse cut-out project that teach color and shape relationships to 3rd grade -6th grade children.
The composition of the piece had to fit an elongated format of the slab door without looking like a montage of two pictures juxtaposed.
There were objects changes from the original sketch. The paint is drying now and after completely dried I would like to apply to the painting a non-yellowing and UV protect varnish. There is not enough time to do that and allow the painting to completely dry before the artist reception. The painting was completed on a slab door 30″ by 80″ in oil. The sides and back ofhte painting is stain natural and has a hand wax and polished finish.
I hope that whomever purchases “When Life Serves You Lemons…” enjoys the painting for a very long time.

The Show will take place on April 6th on St. Clair Winery /Bistro’s East Patio and the auction occurs on Thursday April 26th, 2012 at Hotel Albuquerque. participating artists will create their vision of the theme on 32″ x 80″ interior slab doors. The doors are intended to be blank canvases and the donors will end up with the option to hang them as art pieced of transform them into doors.
A door is a symbol of new opportunity, hope and promise.
