Nightshade Jewels

I know, everyone paints tomatoes, but these were so red!  I painted this in the van, er, mobile studio, while waiting for my dancers.  The only light I had was the from the glow of the computer screen (my mater foto), and 2 little book lights on my cardboard easel!  Oh... another book light on the palette!   Hmmm....maybe I should always paint in the van by book light!

6" x 6" acrylic on gessoed fiberboard  


  1. Yoo're right about these tomatoes...they do shine like jewels...well done.Thanks for following my blog by the way. : ))

  2. I was just painting outside and couldn't get the richness of this painting. Thanks for following my blog.
