I think my post today is a very FAST "CATCH UP" post. Somehow in my head I think I can get all of May's posts made before the DEADLINE (May 31, 2015)! Do you ever feel like that? I do enjoy posting about my work, but as the title above reveals....something in our lives has to suffer. I try not to allow my painting be the one!
Gardening is very much on my mind these days. For right now we do not have to worry about watering the gardens here in Oklahoma, so my tomato plants may have a better survival rate (lol). I love tomatoes. I love painting them and they are wonderful subjects for paintings. A friend and fellow blogger raises tomatoes and makes salsa every year. I would love to be like her (Wordweaver Art). Just getting those tomatoes to grow is a challenge for both my husband and I. Anyway, I couldn't wait for them to start producing so I have been buying them. These two in the painting below were so pretty that I took one off and consumed it, but decided to paint the other two with the vine still on them. I set them on a window sill and the light is from the back of the tomatoes themselves; however, the light bounced around them and the sill providing several exciting design elements that hopefully I managed to record on canvas. Click on the title if you are interested in buying. It will take you to my Etsy shop. Thanks for coming by today to hear me "whine" about time (lol).
