Many Mini Tomatoes

Oil on canvas on panel, 6" x 6" -- SOLD

I harvested these mini-tomatoes more than a month ago, just before the first major frost hit central Washington. We had minor frost much earlier, but I kept those green tomatoes in the garden, covered with heavy duty plastic sheet. I've been storing the green ones in the mud-room. Now many of them are starting to ripen, changing colors. It's so amazing. I wonder how long they will last. This painting is a study of tomatoes. I spent ten minutes for each box, and switched the model with another tomato for variation. This is based on the DPW Ten-Minutes Challenge. It's a great exercise for my painting skills.
