Prickly Pear Fruit

"Prickly Pear Fruit"
10" x 10" oil on panel

When I saw this fruit in the produce department of the 
grocery store I wondered what they were. They 
displayed so many beautiful colors 
and felt plump like a full water balloon.

I cut through the leather skin to see what it looked like. 
Brilliant pink inside! Their juicy fleshy tasted mildly sweet. 
No wonder that they are called succulents. The seeds are 
hard like kernels of popping corn. Fascinating!
