Horned Melons

Created: 2018

Artist's Inspiration

I created “Horned Melons” after a patron at an art festival where I was exhibiting 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.
