Melon Seeds

"Melon Seeds"
8" x 10"
Oil on canvas panel
I had waited to slice into the melon until my background was dry.  Then I'd cut it open, and paint whatever I found.  What I found was melon balls in a glass bowl in my refrigerator! My daughter made a delicious dessert from subject matter.  

Round two.  I made the slice, and pulled the seeds from the cavity. One seed stuck, but one seed, one slice, one background was not a good idea.  So I slid two more seeds onto the left side, just as they had landed on another slice and painted it.
