A Pomegranate

A Pomegranate, 5 inches by 7 inches, December 2010
Sold! Private collection, Bondurant, Iowa

Today I revisited the ever evasive pomegranate. It has skin like leather, so it doesn't shine, and instead of gentle curves it has gently curving facets. It's almost dark red, but transitions in every direction to pale versions of faded violet. The turning edges reflect every color without ever having a gloss.
