Nothing is more refreshing than a slice of cold watermelon in the middle of summer; I love painting fruit, but watermelon is one of my favorites. I spent a lot of time arranging and rearranging this still life trying to create variety in the color, value, and texture. I love when a painting has mostly light, or middle value tones with one dark object like the brown, glass bottle in this one. I was glad to paint my favorite salt shaker too, but the question is - to salt, or not to salt?


  1. This is beautiful! I really like your style. It's refreshing and lively, and yet soothing to the eye. The composition in this piece is wonderful, and the colors are placed so nicely. Congratulations!

  2. There is a wonderful harmony in colour and composition and I have always been a fan of your brushwork!!

  3. This painting does have a summer like feeling to it.Very beautiful and enjoyable work.
