Oil on hardboard. 5" x 7".
I always have some of these very small (runt!) watermelons in my garden spots growing among the few normal size melons each summer. This one was especially precious and I painted it on a white tablecloth to celebrate its uniqueness. I ended up celebrating roundness both in the watermelon and in the folds of the cloth and I thought that was pretty cool. It was actually an excuse to paint the green and creamy-white stripes of the melon I'm sure. Oh, by the way, it wasn't edible but I didn't care!
