The name pomegranate comes from Medieval Latin pōmum "apple" and grānātum "seeded".
It is the root of grenade (the explosive) and garnet (the gem color), per Wikipedia.

I overloaded this postcard with watercolor paint and I was going to toss it, but first tried washing it off under the tap. I like it now.

Nothing like a good washing for a painting! I love pomegranates and I really love yours--the texture of the skin seems just right, somehow.

JENN: That's the thing: the skin!
I had tried to paint the texture, but couldn't.
Then, when I washed it, some paint remained in the watercolor paper's pits, making the perfect pomegranate dimples!
