Watercolor: Pomegranate

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.

VERY nice!

Daniel Saunders says

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.

Lucy says

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!
