Heirloom--Original American Still Life Oil Painting

The beautiful heriloom tomatoes that are popular again inspired this 5x7 inch oil painting on a black gessoed hardboard panel. These antique tomato plants produce all colors and flavors of tomatoes that are usually only available at local farmer's markets or specialty stores. It is the end of the season for these and other summer produce; the weather prediction tonight is for the first freeze of the season which means all those green tomatoes need to be brought inside. Vine ripened tomatoes are finished. When this little oil painting dries, it will be placed in the Small Impressions Gallery with my other small still life oil paintings.
