THOUGHTS ON PAINTING
The Watermelon Flavor painting is reflective of a number of different emotions tied to the human experience. Religion, renewal, temptation and fear; these are common elements experienced in life, and with this piece, they are exhibited beautifully. The main focus lies on the watermelon that is so rich with nourishing water it is one of the most refreshing treats on an oppressively hot day. Alongside that sense of invigoration lays the pear, the symbol of God's love, and an orange that symbolizes renewal, suggesting liberation found in faith. There is an apple there, too, that speaks to temptation and sin along with the dark bottle that is heavy with the feeling of confinement. Yet a light shines over each of these items, suggesting that even when one is fraught with inner turmoil, there is always something to guide them out of it.
