Hello everyone. It has been a while since I posted. Sometimes, life gets caught up, and you are unsure what hit you! I painted this picture after I watched a tutorial by Kristy Rice. My leaves in this painting are abominable☹. Now, this is such an old English word, and I learnt this word when I used to read Enid Blyton’s stories. Do you remember them? They were full of adventure with a happy ending😊😊. I bought whole sets as a keepsake.
Now let us get back to lemons, the subject of our discussion. Suzie commented, ” when you get lemons, please make lemonade”. I have heard this numerous times. I understand what that means 😊😊. But, must we always do something about the lemons or do something about our life at that point when some disaster happened. Lemons are the opportunities that get thrown in our paths. If we don’t learn to recognise that chance, we have missed the boat☹ and I have missed many😊😊.
I love the colour yellow. Somehow it makes one feel cheerful, optimistic and filled with Hope. When I was painting this picture, I was feeling low. By the time I completed, I felt refreshed as though I had drunk a glass of lemonade😊😊. I made my lemonade😊.
I hope you, too, get that optimism after seeing that painting. Till the next musing, stay hopeful, as lemons will come your way, and you will know what you should do😊.
