"Vine Tomatoes" and 2 Others Headed to Principle Gallery

     These are three of my latest paintings, all headed to Principle Gallery in Alexandria for their Small Works show in December. I've had the idea to paint ripening tomatoes since around 2010 when I first planted Sun Gold tomatoes and noticed how striking the gradations of color along the vine can be. In this context color is a metaphor for time, also the grouping reminds me of a family.
