Painting of the Day
It has been a lazy weekend for me. I thought I was going to get started on two paintings. One in oil and one in egg tempera. Don't know why I've been so distracted but I forced myself to get some work done. I decided to try to do one of these one session paintings. So I ran to my fridge and picked up a tomato. Nothing special about the tomato, I just needed something to get me going. I guess it worked because I completed this little one tonight. Was not into it at first but it grew on me and followed through until I was happy with it. I got satisfaction from this tomato not only by painting it but as soon as I was done with it I chopped it and used it in my chicken soup!
