Inspiration for this painting
was the words to an old folk song by Harry Belafonte,
that got stuck in my head:
"Lemon tree very pretty and the lemon flower is sweet,
but the fruit of the poor lemon is impossible to eat."
I had hoped that by painting this, I could exorcise the little demon.
Not Harry, loved his songs. We'll see.
