Cullen's Tomatoes


Cullen's Tomatoes

One of my instructors this year is growing a variety of tomatoes, which he generously shares with me!! These bright reds and the yellow make the BEST pasta sauce AND dried tomatoes. This is what they looked like BEFORE I rendered them into a terrific evening's meal. Thank you, Cullen!

these tomatoes look so delicious and succulent...it really makes me imagine having a simple slice of fresh bread with a slice or two of tomato, salt and pepper....great shading between your tomatoes.

Lin, these are BEAUTIFUL! you've done just a fabulous job geting the shapes, highlights, colors, etc. I haven't had much time to do any drawing/painting lately, nor blog surfing, but you're inspiring me!

Can tomatoes really be this dreamy? Apparently so. Beautiful work Lin.

Those are tasty looking tomatoes. It's fun that you can use them as art subjects before serving them.

Nice work, Lin. This is very easy to look at. Would make a great note card set.
