"Half a Tomato," 4x4 oil on gesso board

I noticed that I was over tweaking my paintings, so I decided to make something small and quick and did this one. I succeeded, then followed it up with tweaking. Interestingly, sometimes you have to modify reality; the dark streak that runs down the middle of the tomato really is there and, in fact, is darker, but I had to lighten it up because it looked strange.
