Vine Tomatoes



It came to my attention that these vine tomatoes were on their way out and that if I wanted to paint them today had to be the day. Have you ever had great expectations about painting something only to decide that something else is more interesting. I bought these tomatoes thinking that I'd rush home and paint them and then time went by and by and by.

Yep...done that too....many an eggplant, grape and pepper made its way to the garbage or table before I painted it....distractions or disinterest usually. This it good, Linda I lke the vairations in the oranges.

Are you kidding me? I now have an artichoke, leeks, and peas which are on their last leg. I did paint the peas once. Just trying to get something done before they hit the garbage!

Your tomatoes look yummy and colors are beautiful. Very nice, Linda!

Hi Linda, lovely composition. Believe me, I picked the last 4 vine tomatoes this morning to decorate toasted croissants with scrambled eggs. Speaking of garbage, I used to cut open a large pumpkin and painted or sketched till it attracted funny insects and algae.
