Two Tomatoes

Two Tomatoes
6x8 Original Oil on Wrap Around Canvas
by Cheri Wollenberg

Well, I lost the race!  My husband and I were in a race to raise the first tomato of the year.  I opted to get the "new" upside down "cherry" tomato version (laugh - it was the most creative), and he went with the regular "beefy" one that gets large.  I (without telling him) fertilized mine...but he won anyway.  We had a feast on his tomato by making tomato and bacon sandwiches...ummmmmm.  I was inspired to paint tomatoes again.  Every year I paint tomatoes when they become ripe in harvest.  They are lovely to look at.  They have such beauty in their texture and color.  Just by previous experiences of eating them, a visual memory brings my mouth to water.  Hopefully this little composition will do the same......bring a memory of a previous, sensual experience that includes the beauty, the red color, the texture and taste of the simple tomato.

Love the fresh from the backyard garden look. These are not hothouse tomatoes by any means.
