I’ll Have The One With Its Back To Me

Along with Garden Cardoon, this is part of a group of still life paintings of things from our garden or our friends’ gardens. We love to grow San Marzano tomatoes and make homemade pasta sauce. The title of this piece comes from my boys, who refer to the calyx as the tomato’s wig. When you remove the wig, you see the bald spot. The tasty looking tomato on the right must have its back to us since we can’t see its wig or bald spot. Acrylic on pressed paper board, 8 by 10 inches.
