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.
