Five Tomatoes-16x16

I seem to have more interest in doing still life subjects lately. I saw these tomatoes at the market yesterday and thought it would be fun to set up a still life and paint the subtle light effects and color variations. My wife had a tomato knife that I added to the composition which gave a nice spot of dark to an otherwise relatively high key painting. There are plenty of lost and found edges which I think helps to hold interest in a simple composition. The subject and the style is unusual for me which made it fun!
