Description Lemon Tree' is also the title of a folk song written by Will Holt. The tune is based on the Brazilian folk song Meu limo, meu limoeiro, arranged by Jos Carlos Burle in 1937. I first heard it song by Harry Belafonte in the late fifties and then by Peter, Paul, and Mary. https://youtu.be/MLhYghzNfIILYRICS:When I was just a lad of ten, my father said to me'Come here and take a lesson from the lovely lemon tree''Don't put your faith in love, my boy' my father said to me'I fear you'll find that love is like the lovely lemon tree'Lemon tree, very pretty, and the lemon flower is sweetBut the fruit of the poor lemon is impossible to eatLemon tree, very pretty, and the lemon flower is sweetBut the fruit of the poor lemon is impossible to eatOne day beneath the lemon tree, my love and I did lieA girl so sweet that when she smiled, the stars rose in the skyWe passed that summer lost in love, beneath the lemon treeThe music of her laughter hid my father's words from meLemon tree, very pretty, and the lemon flower is sweet
I.M. Spadecaller, Clearwater Member Since March 2010 Artist Statement Welcome to Spadecaller's Galleries.
About the Artist: Spadecaller (Matt Schwartz) is the pseudonym he uses for his visual art, writing, poetry, and video creations; initially, the name came about by his direct approach on subjects that focus on humanitarian issues that impact our world today. He's known to call a spade a spade.
In the late 1950’s, Spadecaller’s formal training in traditional oil painting techniques commenced. He was eight years old, when he started private painting lessons. Through considerable personal sacrifice, his mother, who has since passed away, nurtured his artistic talents and provided him with many of the tools and circumstances to launch his creative journey. Memories of art exhibitions in New York City that his mother introduced him to continue to motivate his quest for excellence. Spadecaller attended The School of Visual Arts in New York City (1970-71), and during the 70's up until the late 80's, he exhibited acrylic and oils in Montreal and New York. As a realist painter, he strives to capture the beauty of nature and the soul of humankind. Due to the onset of chronic illness in the late nineties and with the advent of image editing software, he turned to creating digital hand painted images, mixed media and photographic art - fusing these into an art form worthy of the same gratification that he had once found in oils.
