Pomegranates

Pomegranates

Piece description from the artist

This painting shows two pomegranates which fell off a tree close to where I live. I picked a third and tried eating it, but it did not taste good. I love the name 'pomegranate,' which translates to 'apple seed' in Latin. In France, pomegranates are just called 'grenades,' so they are named for their seeds, not their similarity to apples. Hand grenades are named after pomegranates. Chucking one of these would make less of a mess than chucking a hand grenade. What a difference there would be in the world if armies were to throw fruit at each other. I can imagine soldiers running across battle fields pointing bananas, dodging the pomegranates.
