Lemon Light

 
"Lemon Light", 6x6" oil on canvas panel
 "Light thinks it travels faster than anything but it is wrong. No matter how fast light travels, it finds the darkness has always got there first, and is waiting for it."
— Terry Pratchett

Talk about bringing light into darkness, my husband and I have a dear friend who, for a number of years, has gifted us with her homemade limoncello at Christmas. And, I can certainly tell you, it is to die for! Today's not-so-still life captures a cordial of this delicious lemon liqueur, posing along side one of the very cool bottles she so delicately decanted full of her sumptuous golden treasure. 
Perhaps it's just my imagination, but I am sure the step sisters huddled up against the glass are staring in amazement and green with envy at the smooth creamy transformation of Cinderella. Not to worry sisters, at the stroke of midnight she will have vanished leaving only her empty glass behind. 

Thanks for sampling my wares today.
