It's a pomelo. I painted a bunch of fruit from a simple idea to create a painting as a warm up exercises before doing a larger painting. It turns out that the fruit paintings worked out and I kept going with it for a while. So, if you like pomelos, bright colors, and texture then you may like this painting.
“Paint for f*cking paint” as an old professor told me. To this date the statement still holds true in my work. I paint simply for the sake of painting while capturing a moment full of color and expression. In the end I strive to achieve my goal that every inch of the painting needs to be interesting. I'm a painter currently living in Portland Oregon. Between web design and painting I spend a good deal of my time working with the arts. My current motivation is to paint at least two full paintings each week while trying to improve my style and expression with each new piece.
