I have a small collection of food paintings that hang on my kitchen wall (I must remember to take a photo of that!), and this is the latest installment.
Tomatoes. I love them sooo much.
While I was working on this, I couldn't stop thinking about how nice a cherry tomato would taste. And the next time I was at the grocery store, I accidentally bought a small container of them. I'm actually not even sure I did it on purpose. I got home and there they were! Sneaky little tomatoes.
They tasted like water. And the texture reminded me of chewing on a balloon. It was kind of the worst tomato ever grown.
So now I have this painting to tide me over until summer. When I can finally eat sun-warmed tomatoes that taste like tomatoes.
p.s. It's SNOWING today! We have been having the weirdest winter ever. 60 degrees in January?? What? Okay. I had never experienced a mild winter before, and at first I hated it. And then I started to really like it. And then when I was going on walks without a coat or gloves on I absolutely loved it.
It has been softly snowing all day and I have to admit, I am relieved winter is back. Turns out, I had been missing it. I just got home from a walk with my giant sled dog and when we came inside I couldn't get his collar off (frozen to his neck fur). Hooray for winter!!
