Gotta love those lemons. If you were to ask the average person, “what color is this lemon,” most would say yellow. Ask an artist and there will be a multitude of answers because we all see things differently.

This reminds me of the scene in the movie Local Color where Nicolai asks John, “what color are those clouds?” John replies that they are white, whereupon Nicolai cusses him and pulls a handkerchief from his pocket and throws it on the ground. “This is white, now what color are the clouds.” This is when John’s eyes are opened to the colors around him, when he sees blues, greys, pinks and yellows in the clouds.
