Blue Enameled Pot and Red Tomatoes

Blue Enameled Pot and Red Tomatoes
12x12 Oil on Canvas
by Cheri Wollenberg
This painting is from an image I photographed several years ago.  An artist friend brought in a basket full of very ripe tomatoes, green beans, and black-eyed susan flowers.  My goodness did we ever have a "photo shoot".  We arranged them in baskets, pots, and in every possible way  that we could imagine in a matter of very little time.  The experience we had was in itself beautiful.  The delights that artists have are so playful and childlike.  To my knowlege, I think the tomatoes were the only things I actually painted from life.  What a shame!  But, I have countless resources and sometimes I open that folder and remember my dear little friend - who has since moved away to another state.  I enjoyed painting Blue Enamel Pot and Red Tomatoes.  It has a real country mood to it.  Reminds me of other times in my past
