Lime 49

You guessed it. It was my birthday. And what better way to celebrate my birthday than to paint a lime.

I started this with the ink drawing. I splashed watercolor down wit ha lot of water. Then I took a tube of acrylic paint that had a very serrated edge and dragged to color around.

My daughter made a birthday card for me with.... can you guess? Limes on it. 42 limes on the front and number 43 on the inside. That would be my age for those of you counting at home.

HAPPY BIRTHDAY, RANDY!
I'm really enjoying this "lime thing". You get more innovative every day.
Also, I appreciate the different, and effective, ways you are applying pen, watercolor,etc.
