Throw back Thursday -- a painting of local bounty

I was standing in my studio today.  (I've been painting edges, and running errands
and thinking.)  And suddenly I saw this painting on a ledge above the window.
I think my eye is so used to those paintings (there are four small ones there), that
I don't notice them.

But I did today.  And I thought -- how lovely.  Plus it's throw back Thursday!  What
could be more perfect.  The painting is of market tomatoes from Picton, Ontario,
Canada, sitting in a bowl on our kitchen table -- with the strong late day light we 
get at this time of year hitting them. 

They look like an offering to the Gods of Fall -- who it seems are many.  We are
having such a spectacular fall in Toronto this year.  Just over the top gorgeous.

Have a loving your city (or town) day.
