Beefsteak Tomato. (Day 30 – Made it!)
This year we planted three different varieties of tomatoes in grow bags in the garden. I typically have very little success growing tomatoes. In most years I watch every other gardener harvesting enough tomatoes to make a freezer full of soup, ragu and tomato concentrate. And at the same time, we manage to pick a very small handful of undersizes, overripe, pea-sized specimens – over the entire summer.
For a change, this time our beefsteak tomatoes thrived. In celebration of reaching day 30 of 30 Paintings in 30 Days (even if in fits and starts), I painted our magnificent first picked, beefsteak tomato.
30 Paintings in 30 Days has been a fabulous experience. It’s been a great motivation to paint regularly, and has helped stock up Running With Brushes beautifully, just in time for Christmas.
Beefsteak Tomato is my 30th in the challenge and my 64th painting for Running With Brushes.
And I’ve got a whole 7 minutes to got for #PaintSeptember.
