6X6 Oil on Ampersand Gessobord

We have a lot of tomatoes, because of a trip to Costco. I thought it was time I painted a tomato - how convenient! They make a good subject with all their reds and these tomatoes had green stems. And what goes better with a tomato - besides bread, bacon and lettuce - basil and mozzarella - avocado, jalapeno, cilantro and limes (I could go on and on!)? Salt, of course! And in this dreary, cold, icy day tomatoes with a little salt are just the thing to remind me that spring is just around the corner!

  1. Wonderful! I like the arrangement of your tomatoes! the reflective light in the salt shaker! Fantastic and not easy to do!

  2. Beautiful Linda! I bought some tomatoes today too! Hopefully I can paint them before they get eaten! Love the salt shaker too!

  3. The values on your objects and shadows are great.

  4. agree! salt is great on tomatoes. I had a friend who put sugar on them....yuck! Salt is the only way to go! Good job the red

  5. I love this red tomatoes! And the contrast with the whites and greys of the salt shaker! Ciao!
