watermelon #2 5.5x7

Your painting is so detailed that it reminded me of something: whatever happened to the watermelons we ate when we were children? You know the ones with the big black seeds which we spit out? My brother and I used to pinch them between our fingers and see who's flew the furthest... (Genetic modifcation has a lot to answer for, I actualy miss the seeds)

I also miss the watermelons with seeds. I wanted to find one to paint because they are what I remember from my youth. I also think the seeds add a nice bit if contrast. The clerk in the produce department said that they get watermelons with seeds later in the season. I'm looking forward to it.
