"Horned Melons"

Created: 2018

Artist's Inspiration

I created “Horned Melons” after a patron at the 2018 Atlanta Dogwood Festival suggested that I do a vertically oriented piece using fruits and vegetables.  Most food-related compositions are horizontal because placing the subject matter across a table and keeping everything roughly on the same focal plane is easiest and most natural.  So, stacking the subjects vertically in this image was a challenge that took a bit more effort than usual.  Ultimately, using relatively tall florals and edible foliage in the background to give the composition height helped make the piece come together.
