Illustration Friday...

I am enjoying Illustration Friday so much that I would like to share with you this week's contribution in my Arty Farty Blog "Just Another Peace Artist" ...
This digital "painting" was done using Corel Painter and a Wacom Tablet.
The subject was CITRUS.

Pourquoi est-ce que le sirop de citron est fait avec des produits chimiques alors que le liquide pour laver la vaisselle est à base de vrai citron ?

Ajouter de la tomate et de l'origan, ça devient italien ; du vin et de l'estragon, ça devient français ; du citron et de la cannelle, ça devient grec ; de la sauce de soja, ça devient chinois ; ajouter de l'ail, ça devient bon !

On dirait que la douleur donne à certaines âmes une espèce de conscience. C'est comme aux huîtres le citron.

Tu es tres accompli avec le Wacom. C'est dommage que mon ordinateur es kaput (c'est un bon mot francais, n'est pas? :) parce que j'aime le sujet de 'Illustration Friday' cette semaine. (You may now ridicule my French.)

no WONDER things haven't been working out. I thought when you got a lemon you were supposed to squeeze it over the fish! I guess I'm just doing it wrong....

Merci beaucoup, Andréa! Ton Français est formidable!

Dip-dop, online translation often goes astray.

Hayden, just think of home made lemonade, garden, parasol...

Suana, welcome and thanks.

Bella, I think I shall one day.

DSI, thanks.

Hi, Val...
Last year I went to watercolour classes but I get bored very quickly.
I'd like to try oils.

I had the most delicious filet of trout with lemon linguine. Next time some lemons come around, they'll be quickly transformed into this dish. And then I love lemon bars, Americans make wonderful ones. Do you have any good recipe?

Forget to add that I ate them in the shade of old chestnut trees, high above the city of Salzburg, which lay to my feet as I enjoyed my meal. :-)

Thank you Ginger, Bee and Moonandstars.

Z, too many things, too little time.

Thanks for visiting my blog, Liz. Curious comments?

Welcome back, Queenie... Drake? Didn't he have his head chopped off when he felt out royal favour? Ouch!
I shall check out Liz's artwork.

Merisi, you have the most amazing time! That lemon linguine sounds wonderful. Especially high above Salzburg.
Microwave lemon curd!

The world is full of wonders. :-)))
Got a recipe? (I figure I can always smear it on some crushed Graham cracker crust *grin+).

No, Merisi I'm sorry I do not have the recipe.
A neighbour of mine in Spain makes it quite often and I can assure you it is really nice!
