Watermelon Carvings Steal the Show

Fruit-carving-cindy-2My student/customer Cindy Rozich, recently shared with me a few photos of the gorgeous watermelon carvings that she created and donated to a local high school theater production of Tarzan.

The three carvings were on display in the lobby throughout the show’s five performances, including a dinner theater with an audience of over 3,000 people.

The positive response was over whelming and very gratifying!!! It was really exciting to stand back and watch people look at the carvings! People took pictures with them and of them. Everybody loved them!!!!” –Cindy

Cindy's Tarzan themed watermelon carvings

Cindy’s two watermelon carvings featured the Tarzan the Stage Musical logo, which includes Tarzan swinging on a vine for the letter “Z.” You can learn how to carve letters in my two-DVD course, Carvings Words and Letters.

The third carving represented the high school’s mascot, the Warriors. The Warrior Cheif carving included a full headdress of pineapple tops as well as radishes and sweet potatoes.

Cindy did a beautiful job of arranging her lovely carvings into an eye pleasing display. The plants, lava like rocks and grass table skirt fit the Tarzan theme perfectly. All three watermelon carvings were displayed among a decorative bed of curly kale and radish flowers.

Cindy is going professional so she was smart and was prepared for questions about her pricing. And, she had her business cards placed strategically in the front of her dramatic and beautiful display. See the round watermelon colored items in front of the watermelon Chief. Those are her business cards. You can see a close up look at her business cards below. The side of her business card with her name and contact info look like the inside slice of watermelon complete with seeds. The other side looks like the rind of a watermelon and has her Logo and tagline. It’s a very clever design that her son, Dirk made. Looks like creative talent runs in the family.

Cindy is a customer / student of my 17 lesson collection.

Cindy, thanks for sharing your photos. We wish you all the best in your carving adventures.

    Good afternoon, Nita. I wanted to thank you for posting my Mom’s work to your site. She is so excited with your article displaying her recent carvings! However, may I ask for one small edit? I am the one that designed her watermelon business cards… and my name is not Ryan, haha!

    Thanks again!

    Nita -thank you so much for going out of your way and calling me this past weekend. . I am beginning my classes with you this weekend. One of my favorites are the simple daises from the radishes—Anyway, all of these carvings are so beautiful! Cindy’s designs are fabulous. I just hope and pray that because i am not an artist– but i am creative–I will succeed like she has done.
    Thank-you again foe making my dreams of carving started and true..i also bought the 17 video courses!
