"Cantaloupe", oil on canvas, 22" x 28"
Another example of how moods can effect work, I've been in a sleepy-easy-no worries kind of mood for the past week ( I have no reason for this, with the millions of deadlines quickly approaching) and the mood I believe has reached it's peak this morning. I awoke content to great the morning, knowing that I have a weekend free to be in my studio for as long as I want.
I am usually inclined to paint a palette that pops! but this easy muted cantaloupe I'm enjoying for it's peaceful nature. Much like yesterday's watermelon it evokes Summer, but I think it really calls to the laziness of long Summer days, more so than the outside activities that Summer leans towards.
