Slice of a November Summer

When it's 65 degrees in Minnesota, in November, you paint watermelon. I was going to paint this one in pastels, but the oil paints on my palette were the perfect colors for the melon. I worked at getting the intricate varying lines of color that appear on watermelon and I think I accomplished that in certain areas. I failed at getting the miniscule drops of juice that form on the surface but I will try again on another. Maybe if we have a 65 degree day this January I will.
