30 Paintings in 30 Days - Day 3 - Cherry Tomatoes - SOLD

"Cherry Tomatoes" - 5 x 7 inches - oil on paper 

Day 3 of the 30 paintings challenge. 

Even though it is winter and tomatoes aren't in season in the northeast, I've been buying little orange tomatoes that are really sweet and delicious.  I also love their yellow orange color.  I took a handful and spread them across the top of my coffee table with strong lighting to create some interesting shadows.

For those that are interested, a put together a quick video of some of the paintings that I did in 2013.  I've done this for the past couple of years.  It is fun to see them in a slide show.  Certainly brings back a lot of memories for me of the past year.  To view the video, click here.

Hi Laurie, love your colorful shadows. I just watched your 2013 painting video… Wow! so many last year… my favorite is the cat in the hallway! Good luck with the challenge.
