Illustration Friday - Twist

I am presently unnerved by my inability to think creatively, abstractly, and un-joan-like. This week's Illustration Friday topic is "Twist" and it has twisted my brain to no end. How more concrete can one get than a lime twist? Oy vey. I need a drink. :)

I am going to let this sit here and perhaps create a new IF illustration later. Hmmm ... I wonder if that drink will help loosen my noggin'.

Well, whatever....you think you are uncreative if you want to, but 10 other people would not have rendered a lime in the same way. This is a very nice and interesting composition and I love the colors and technique. The textures of the shadows and the textures of the lime peel are different and that gives it interest. It is a mouth-watering piece, and a great example why I feature your link on my blog.

Thanks Laura, Mitzi, Tina and Kathleen! I guess I learned something today that I should have learned in Kindergarten. I need to accept the style that's me. Thanks Kathleen. :)
