As soon as I got my e-mail from IF about this week's theme "seed" watermelon came to mind...and I just love it! I eat tons of watermelon all year long....

Hope you have a wonderful day and pop by all week for more fun!

Like your crisp and colourful drawing; of course it remind me of how we used to spit mouthsful of watermelon seeds at one another as a kid.

Mmmmm, delicious! The speaker who suggested the 21 day exercise is a writer (Laurie Halse Anderson)and part of her advice for making time was to write/paint anywhere; in a car, in the bathroom, waiting in line, etc. Your stolen moments approach is right in line with that!

Ces said...

Of course! Watermelon is a ball of seeds surrounded by flesh. I like the blue background. This watermelon is a real come on on a hot day.
