Listen to a reflection about this object.
Colleen Piccone, Curatorial Assistant Speaking on Jon Carsman’s Melon Glow
What intrigues me about this watercolor is the vibrant and intense melon color, a favorite of mine, edged in dark outline. The home is illuminated with sunshine as the trees and the wires cast long dark shadows. The architecture is familiar, like the Corn Hill area nearby.
I love the realistic style and the use of strong light and shadows. This reminds me of what watercolorist Charles Burchfield would have painted 40 years ago.
As the snow melts on the roof, I’m reminded of how beautiful a sunny winter day can look and feel.
