Red Tomato Still Life

Red Tomato – 6" x 6" Oil on Canvas Panel SOLD

I just got some new tomatoes from the grocery store, and I was fascinated with the way the stem of this single tomato had such personality. It really amazing how very different each plant grows, this tomato's stem wraps around and the texture of the twisting stem seems to change as the stem gets further and further away from the "meat" of the tomato. No other tomato of the bunch purchased is similar, they are all different. I plan to paint the other tomatoes before I cook them, but that depends on how busy the week turns out to be...

Thanks, E. Floyd
