My Monday night was no different than any others. After getting home from work I had to make dinner, and since the days have been cold I thought a good home made chicken soup would be nice. I decided to save half of a vine ripe tomato because it looked so bright and juicy, I new I needed to paint it. After eating my soup and relaxing for a bit I went to work on this small painting. I tried something a little different. Instead of painting on a canvas panel I used stretched canvas, and the change was nice. I actually liked the way the canvas bounced back as I lay the color in. For some reason I do better on canvas, or at least that's the way it appears to me. At the end I was happy to have accomplished a small painting along with a banging home made chicken soup!
