In contrast I spent the last six weeks working on watermelon still lifes. I planted the seeds in the spring and am just now realizing the fruits of my labor. (Or is it the labor of my fruits?) So now as the air cools and the leaves change color I have paintings around the studio specific to high summer.

The above drawing done at a recent figure session is the best I can do to honor the current season. A profile lit from below. It's at least a little spooky don't you think? BOO!
