"Yellow Tomatoes 2" --- SOLD



I've heard a few times that when you're in a slump with your art, you're just about to grow in a new way. I'm still feeling a bit stiff, so here's to that theory being right!

What I love about this one is the very subtle difference in color of the middle tomato. Also the very beautiful shadow under the plate.
My philosophy on how I like to enjoy art is this...I like to not get all the info I need the first time I glance at a painting. You know how some paintings you look at and you see "Oh, three tomatoes" and can move along. But I like it when you see "Three tomatoes, oh wait, is that a bit of pink? or is that middle one a different color? Or how did they get those edgeslike that. Or whatever. I always like to look at your pantings again and again.

If this is a slump, I can't wait till I reach mine! What a refreshing take on still life tomatoes.

Dude, I just love this. It's really spectacular. I am so torn because I love the onions, too and I love the red wine. But I can't buy three, can I? Well, maybe I can. If only I hadn't just bought that camera...

Well anyway... Can you do one with red wine, onions and a red homegrown tomatoe? I'd buy it in a heartbeat. I'm still checking in every day and saving my milk money.

Carol I LOVE this one! Ditto Lorrie's comment about the ever-so-slight tonal change in one tomato. I also love the softness of some of your shadow edges. So brushy! So painterly! So cool!!!

After watching a number of daily painters for several months now, I have decided you are my favorite-(at least for today :-D) After 328 paintings it seems you might start running out of steam; but your work just gets better and better, and you keep finding new and more beautiful ways of seeing. Looking forward to the day I can stop illustrating and paint more--though I doubt I can ever be as dedicated as you are.
