Cantaloupe Wedges Painting


Cantaloupe Wedges – 6" x 8" Oil on Canvas Panel SOLD

This composition has been floating around in my head for awhile. Cantaloupe is a very interesting fruit, in that the muted rind has such a bright green edge that runs along the orange flesh. The wedges and triangular shadows also add interest. The blue plate was found at a local Goodwill. So with this new prop and a fresh cantaloupe everything came together.

Hi E.Floyd! Thank you much for stopping by and for the positive comment on my eggplants, it means a lot to me!

I love your work and your amazing ability to paint so many different subjects so well. By the way, your portraiture work excellent!

These pieces of cantaloupe are so juicy, I can taste them. Yummm.

Have a great weekend!

Thank you Teresa for your kind words, the cantaloupe painting is one of my favorites. It is amazing how some paintings will just tug on your heartstrings and sing when you look at it. I guess that is what I love so much about painting and being creative.

Have a wonderful weekend as well.
