End of Season Tomatoes

9 x 12 acrylic on canvas board

I have a very shady yard but still tried to grow tomatoes this past summer. Unfortunately, I realized few tomatoes, tall leggy stalks and mostly green rather than rosy, ripened tomatoes. I picked these final tomatoes in late September and was struck by how nice the few red ones looked against my red-striped tea towel. I’m not a still life painter, thus far, but thought I’d give it a try, just for the fun of it.
