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. Yesterday when I went shopping for things to paint I just couldn't pass the vine tomatoes by they were so red and luscious looking. The two items were a perfect match. 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. This oil painting is 8 inches by 8 inches on gessoed canvas board.
