Three Little Tomatoes Sitting in a Tray

Three Little Tomatoes Sitting in a Tray, Oil, 5x7", SOLD

I really, really like what I did with this painting. OK, first came the influence from the Carol Marine workshop. I don't think I would of thought to do a still life from a bird's eye view. But more importantly, what I garnered was how the shapes and angles make an interesting design, rather than painting the objects for themselves. I love how the diagonals lend motion, the strong light and shadows add drama, as well as, the intense reds playing off the cool blues of the shadows. The hard linear qualities of the tray in juxtaposition to the organic shapes of the tomatoes also add contrast and excitement.


  1. I love painting tomatoes and you have done a marvelous painting. Nice composition and I love the hint of color in the shadows.

  2. Love the angles and the shadows and the light! I think this is wonderful!
