Oil on Linen 8" x 10"
Aaaah, colour - I love luscious colour. The need to experience more colour influenced my choices for this week's still life setup. This is tomato season in BC - they are cheap and plentiful. This beauty was not ripe when I started painting the picture, but is ready to be devoured now. The plain-jane salt and pepper shakers delight me because they were a souvenir from North Mart in Iqaluit. And the glass plate... well, I will never paint that again, I've already firmly decided. I am somewhat cross-eyed from trying to figure out the colours and shapes defining that thing. It is now destined to be a cat food plate, permanently.
