Piled

Here's the second of the similar tomato paintings. This one was done on a red ground. I think with the red the colors glow more,  but perhaps yesterday's on the black ground is a bit more dramatic in contrast. Here's the musical inspiration. (To continue looking at the art while you listen, right click on the colored word 'musical' and go to Open Link in New Tab.)
Oil on panel, 6" x 6", $100 (with free display easel) + shipping

yeah the second painting is definitely warmer. I like it better since that's how I think of tomatoes--growing outside in a hot summer garden, either that or a greenhouse. they look more at home to me. :)

Both are cool but I think I like the red background...warms up the white to contrast with the shadows. Love those plump tomatoes!! Makes me wish for some out of my garden!
