oil on canvas panel
6" x 6"

The tomato seen in this painting came from the garden my wife started this summer. We have at least twenty tomatoes sitting on our windowsill waiting to be eaten. I figured she would never know if one was missing, so I borrowed this one to paint. I wanted to finish this piece in one sitting, but that didn't happen. I ended up doing an additional layer on the tomato and the background.

great blog, i particularly enjoy the stages that you have posted of some of the paintings. the tomato is all that a tomato should be, plump, juicy and bursting with flavour:) r.
