IMG_3796     I discovered dragon fruit at a co-op some years ago and was taken by their exotic colors, tail like growth, and their resemblance to fish.  I decided to depict them in a pastel swirling through space with their tails flowing after.

Swirling Dragon Fruit

I came upon an unusual food item in an organic grocery called dragon fruit.  I was struck at the similarity they bore to fish with the brilliant pinks and tail like fronds. I imagined different colors and sizes of them swirling and chasing each other.  The result was a pastel activated with spiraling forms throughout the composition conveying a sense of motion and speed among a world of lush hues.
