Watermelon Day 🍉

Watermelon Day Banner

We are sooooo close to ending this school year. Today’s letter for Ray’s Countdown is W. The W is for Watermelons – and I bet you wanted to see a bunch of watermelon paintings. That’s great, because in an effort to dress-up this nothingburger of a blog post, I’ve put together a slideshow of still-life paintings featuring our favorite large, edible fruit.

However, if you wanted to read about how artists unwittingly captured the evolution of watermelons in paintings, you can read this article from Hyperallergic. It might be the most esoteric thing you rad all day.
