"Tiny Tomatoes," 6x6, oil on ready-to-hang board
This one might be a keeper. These tomatoes also traveled to my workshop and back (see prior post), and they didn't have much more time left, so here they are. I love the green against the reddish-purple. Now, one of my goals is to be more of a bold painter. What that seems to require is a keen eye for seeing what's there, then the ability to put down the right stroke in the right color and let it be. These tomatoes, with their stripes that look like watermelon, were conducive to fussing. So, while I fussed more than I wanted, they're still wonderful little tomatoes. Can tomatoes be cute?
