DRAGON FRUIT, acrylic on canvas

DRAGON FRUIT, acrylic on canvas, 14x14 in.

The last one, of the series of six Drought Tolerant Fruits I painted for the convention and exhibition at  the Jacobs Center in San Diego, California. It was fun and informative to participate in this event. I didn't even know this fruit existed when I started selecting what to paint. I decided to paint them all in a "water-like" background, to emphasize the fact that they are drought resistant, as they were carried water within themselves.
