Red Tomato Green Tomato and Fried Green Tomatoes

8x10 Oil on Canvas
Cheri Wollenberg
Our garden has produced a huge amount of tomatoes this year.  It is so much fun to pick them, give them to neighbors and family,eat them and finally....for me to paint them.  We have had so many that I have started experimenting with different ways of preparing them in foods.  I had never actually cooked fried green tomatoes so I started asking family and friends how to prepare them.  Oh my goodness!  They are wonderful!  We are still picking them, freezing them, and giving them away as well, but I wanted to share some of my new tomato paintings.  This one was so exciting to paint.  I placed them on the window sill in my utility room.  The light is dancing all around them making such wonderful color.  They were delightful to paint.  This painting is listed in my Etsy shop.  You can check it out by clicking tomatoes.

Queen of the Hill - A Cow Painting

8x10 Oil on Canvas
Cheri Wollenberg

 "Queen of the Hill' seems to suit this black baldie cow as she stands proudly on the hill looking down at the viewer.  Her black coat glistens in the light and she has her head held high!  I think she looks like a magnificent creature.  She is surrounded by a field of grasses, and trees are at a distance.  The blue sky sparkles as it is reflected on her coat and her face is designed with spots that resemble sunglasses!  She certainly seemed royal to me as she looked into my camera's eye.  She is listed in my Etsy shop.  Have a look at the Queen.
