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.
