It's watermelon season and the feasting has begun!

I can eat my weight in watermelon. For 2 months
now I have eaten a big bowl of juicy red melon every
single day.

My compost pile looks like some kids had a
watermelon fight out there...rinds galore! I'm afraid
I've tamed all the Possums and Raccoons by giving
them this wonderful nightly snack. They eat it all
the way down to the green part.

Avec la chaleur qui nous épuise en ce moment en France, quelle bonne idée que celle de croquer ce watermelon ! Quel plaisir des yeux... couleurs magnifiques et énergisantes.

After I raid Kim R's shoe closet, I'm heading to your fabric closet. Another wonderful painting. Sure looks like you are enjoying yourself.

I love all your paintings with the fabrics! Congrats on your article. I am on my way to read it.. Thanks for all your advise and inspiration. I want to see a painting of the raccoon eating the watermelon. :)

Great combination of the fruit and the fabric. And the red is so wonderfully saturated. Love it!
