I went to the fruit stand one day during the challenge with the intention to buy pretty fruit to paint. When I got to the check out counter the girl who was checking me out said "Wow, you really have some colorful fruit there." I had to laugh because I bought it specifically to paint, maybe to eat later.
This is a Louisiana grown grapefruit. There was a basket of them at the front counter so I picked one with a leaf left on.

Thank you Leslie Saeta for initiating this challenge.
Now I am off to paint bigger...
