Four Cantaloupe Wedges by Darren Maurer

5" x 7"
Did you know that cantaloupes and melons are in the same gourd family as squashes and cucumbers? Another interesting piece of trivia is while squashes are considered vegetables, cantaloupes are considered fruit. The difference in categorizing them is in the way they are used. It doesn't make sense to me. I do know my wife was cutting up this melon and I stopped her when I saw these four pieces in our kitchen being backlit from a nearby window. I loved the way the wedges were lined up with the light hitting them from the back. This is painting 286 in my Painting A Day Series. Painting Sold.
