Still Life Practice

My preliminary sketch and the pomegranate

This was yesterday's still life practice.  A little trivia for you, my friends....
The word grenade referring to the explosive used in war came from the french word for pomegranate...because the shape of the pomegranate resembled the little bomb and also when thrown on the ground the juicy seeds scatter .... like it's unfortunate namesake.
Thanksgiving came and went with a lovely quiet time spent with my family.  Children home from college, lots of games of scrabble, a movie night, and for the feast we all went out for Thai food.
My kind of holiday...hope yours was wonderful as well.
