Cantaloupe was created for a show titled “Loteria” at Cactus Gallery in Frogtown.
Loteria is a Mexican card game, much like Bingo. Each card has a number and a picture. The Cantaloupe, or Melon card, El Melon, is number 11. I wanted to create a painting that did not directly copy the original card, as seen here~
and yet evoke the idea of a melon, without making an objective painting of a melon. Also, I included the card number in the design. Can you find the card number in my painting?
Cantaloupe 16″ x 20″ oil on wood.
This painting is sold.
