When I was in high school
I remember a Persian melon,
very light pale yellowish/green,
a sphere, sitting on the powder blue Formica counter,
(in my mother's kitchen)
reflected in the brown refrigerator,
its image stunned me.
Still today
I try to capture the sense of presence in that melon,
where one edge of color abutted another.
That's what my work is about.
