I don't keep much of my own work, I do have a collection of seconds, work for one reason or another I couldn't sell. The little lemon dish above is an exception. It is as perfect as it could be. It was done several years ago on a day much like today when my lemon tree was blooming. Sometimes a piece captures a particular moment in time, significant for only the moment when I sat there, at that time, painting that bowl. The fact that this bowl came out so perfect and its connection for me to a perfect moment in time, I simply can not part with it.
