3.5×5.25″ acrylic

This started out as a slice of melon from memory (since I had already cut up the whole thing). I made a wrong turn that the art judge didn’t feel could be remedied, so I set the painting aside. With more brushwork and cotton-ball-work and colors and softening, now it’s just a pleasing (to me) set of shapes and colors. The judge has been quieted for the most part—at least enough to post this for you.
