Vine Tomatoes in Silver Bowl
I was browsing one of the kitchen stores and found this wonderful hammered silver bowl. I just fell in love with it thinking, and rightly so, that it would make a terrific painting.

Oh but let me tell you how difficult it was to paint! The red was glowing and the silver hammered bowl proved to be a challenge. But, I like the way the little painting turned out.
