"Tomatoes"


10" x 8" oil on stretched canvas.

These tomatoes had that unbelievable fresh aroma that you get when you pluck them right off the vine. I had to resist cutting them for my salad on Tuesday. What is really funny is that the artists I follow on dailypaintworks.com had a Tomato Tuesday. Most of the twelve artists painted tomatoes that day.

Don't you love it when you find fruit or vegetables that are so beautiful, with stems and vines, or leaves? Don't you hate it when the grocery bagger plops them in a bag and the stems break off! :)
