This is a painting I did last year of some cantaloupe pieces while I was studying oil painting with my friend and mentor Rob. I have grown quite fond of it, a combination of the time, of the mood, of our friendship.
I have actually built some of my color palette around this painting as seen by the colors of the walls in my kitchen, taken at night so that it is a bit darker than daylight.
The small bathroom near the painting is going to be painted in a faux finish, in shades of light blue, much like the middle ground of the painting.
When I am done I will take more pics. There are some really nice interplays with color going on in parts of my house and it is exciting me. (oh how easily I am amused...)
