"Tomato Center" --- SOLD


I broke a cardinal rule here and put the tomato in the center of the painting. But ... now that I'm looking at it again, I think it works because the most interesting part is more the reflections on the cup or even the handle. Not the tomato. Hmmm ... well I thought I broke a rule. Dang, and here I thought I was being so daring. : )

Well, Carol, I disagree - my eye goes right to the tomato! And I think you were smart to break the rule in this painting - it really does work here. I look at the tomato, THEN my eye gets pulled up into all the interesting reflections. Great piece. Thanks for sharing.

Oh, there you go playing it 'safe' again..
Just kidding of course.
I'm learning from you to keep my darks DARK. Love the drama it sets up.
Another beauty, Carol.
