"Cantaloupe and Strawberry" (in progress)

Oil on 5"x5" gessobord
I was all set to have a nice big slice of this cantaloupe, but one bite, and it was clear that it wasn't going to be any good to eat, just to paint a picture of. I guess I just don't know how to pick out a good melon. It reminded me of an old "Seinfeld" episode, when Jerry says to Kramer... " fruits a gamble, I know that goin' in.." hahaha. Anyway,
I love it's pale orange color, and the way it fades into the pretty pale green near the rind. I added the strawberry for some color. I finished late, so I'll take a good picture of it tomorrow.
