I struggled with picking a subject for this week's painting. When I saw this papaya in the store, I decided to paint it. Papaya is my least favorite fruit. In fact, I really dislike it and would never choose to eat one, but I do think the inside is very interesting looking. It took longer to paint than I thought it would, but since I really wasn't planning to eat it, I wasn't too upset when it looked really dry and unappetizing by the time I finished my painting. Usually I eat my still life set ups once I've finished painting them but this was an exception and although I do feel a little guilty about wasting food, I think I'll get over it especially since I don't think of papayas as an eatable fruit.
