Gouache and watercolor, 12.75" x 12.75", 2107
This is an illustration series for class displaying three steps, I chose to depict how to eat a pomegranate. This less of an instructional guide and more about appreciating their unique beauty, drawing out the process of picking seeds out one by one and appreciating its beauty and history. The settings go from where the fruit is commonly grown to where is is more sparse, the first setting being a pomegranate grove in Iran, the second is a family celebration of Rosh Hashanah in France, and the third is a small apartment in the United States.
These illustrations were then printed at 8.5" x 8.5" and presented as a wall decoration together with a bundle of dried flowers on each end.
