Heirloom Tomatoes Still Life
Have you seen this lovely Heirloom Tomato Oil Painting?
I think it will make a great addition to a country kitchen.
Oh yes it’s not a grand landscape or a wonderful vista but a mundane image of Tomatoes. But what the world be without this marvelous fruit? These are the things in our daily lives we appreciate and for me they make good subject matter. Their curves, the color variations from deep red to orange, a bit of green and even bright yellow.
My paintings, at least according to my collectors, are better looking in person, then when first seen on a monitor.
The colors are vibrant, the texture of the brushstrokes and the subtle smell of oil paint can never be 100% translated on a cold bright monitor.
Holding the real thing, will make it clear why owning original art is really special.
Prints are OK but an original will win your heart forever.
People say my style reminds them of VanGogh, I can see why. I appreciate such a great compliment even though I believe I do have my own unique style.
I study and examine his work whenever I can. Seen many of his pieces at the High Museum of Art in Atlanta. He definitely was one of those that gave me the courage to use bold colors.
