Three Hot Tomatoes

Three Hot Tomatoes...Minnesota Bushel Boys
original oil painting of linen artboard, 4" x 5", unframed
copyright MaryAnn Cleary

These vine tomatoes are Minnesota Bushel Boys and are tasty. Initially, I thought of just doing one tomato, but I really wanted to have a painting with more composition to it so I decided to include all three. One tomato is painted in full with the other two running off of the painting, plus the shawdoes cast from having three tomatoes also adds significant interest with the variations. I really enjoy the geometric shapes formed.

Below are two close-up shots of the painting

This painting is available this week on ebay.
