This is one of the many tomatoes that my wife grew in her garden last year
She also had lots of eggplants and cucumbers and peppers, but didn’t paint any of them. I wish I had now, but she’s going to do it again this year, so I’ll have another chance. The thing about painting fresh vegetables or flowers is that you have to work fast! You can’t let the project drag on for days and days (for obvious reasons.)
There’s nothing like garden-grown vegetables. They really do taste better than the ones you get from the grocery store. My wife is happy that this “Square-Foot Garden” technique is working out really well.
This canvas is 10″ x 20″ and the paint is oil (no medium used; only mineral spirits to thin it.)
