Illustration Friday: Citrus -

"A Subliminal Misunderstanding"
montage by Mick Mather
The theme at Illustration Friday this week presented a bit of problem for me. Oh sure, with the theme being citrus, I could have easily done some sort of still life or chosen the least known fruit of this genus, the shaddock. Instead, I followed along the trail of a misunderstanding, a mistake, a miscommunication and the subliminal misfiring of a memory gap! I hope you enjoy it.

LMAO!!!!Unbelievable! Citroën is my passion, I don't have 2CV, but bigger CX, my old beautiful French lady.
Seems like my commenting is more like telling about myself, than commenting your, once more, fantastic work. But this is really fun.

LMAO right along with you! I had so much fun creating this piece that the troubles I was having much of last week simply melted away.
I must tell you that I adore all of your comments...it's how we get to know one another. Trading little bits, pieces & secrets back and forth is a wonderful way to build a relationship.

I always wanted a yellow and green deux cheveux, personally. But I guess it is not to be in this lifetime. Anyway, I enjoyed your piece very much!

Thanks so much for this comment. I'm about half asleep and couldn't give your work more than a glance - I'll do better tomorrow.

LMAO @ "have owned a few lemons". I thank you for the comment and, by the way, I've been to Pacific Grove. I had dinner at a lovely little restaurant overlooking the bay. A beautiful place.

Thanks so much. As you may be discovering, I have this bent perspective that takes me, more often than not, well around the edges of an idea. Is that what they mean by "outside of the box"? :D
