After I researched my watermelon art pieces for September, I knew I needed some immediately! I went to my neighborhood grocery and they had these adorable “personal” sized seedless watermelons.

Bruegel’s pieces weird me out a bit. Despite being around 450 years old, his work looks so modern to my eyes. Maybe he was a secret time traveller?
Enjoy some fishy pieces for August…
