Citrus Painting

citrus-by-enzie-shahmiri.jpg

When I was in Italy I noticed a lot of citrus trees in beautiful terracotta pots that were in gardens surrounded by old, highly textured walls. Lemons have always appeared in Italian gardens, either for culinary use, medicine or just for decoration. They require a sunny position, preferably with a wall or rock face behind them to retain heat. I loved that look and wanted to incorporate a highly textured background, reminiscent of those aged and peeling walls in this painting. 

 

The painting is available in a variety of sizes as canvas prints with or without hand embellishment.
