One traditionally eats pomegranate on Rosh Hashana, the Jewish new year, and thus I have been working on a watercolor of a pomegranate as part of my series on the food symbols of this holiday.
The prayer that one says, the yehi ratzon, is as follows:
“she’nirbeh ze’chu’yos k’rimon”
“…that our merits increase like (the seeds of) a pomegranate.”
You can read more about the pomegranate in this Jewish Action article.

Enjoy the watercolor pomegranate!

This is beautiful. Congratulations. Your illustrations are sodelightful they could be used for decorating a succah.
Beautiful! Shana tova my friend.
Of course you can borrow the picture!
Just leave my name on it, okay?
I really like this, especially the contrast between the red of the pomegranite and the dark surroundings. I also agree with Ilana-Davita about using it to decorate a succah.
Your painting is delightful! My mother taught me to eat pomegranates before most people new what they were. People thought I so weird eating those funny looking little seeds!
Decorate a succah and also, a perfect New Year’s card. Really lovely.
This is just beautiful.
It’s lovely! the colors are as refreshing as the fruit. I enjoyed following the process from beginning to end and I look forward to the rest of the series.
You have a great blog!

This is absolutely beautiful, and I love the tones and blend of textures you managed to capture.
May I use this (with links and copyright) in my own blog in the next couple of days?
