First Tomato

6 x 6" oil on panel

This was our first tomato of the year ( a late tomato) which I decided deserved to be the subject of a painting.  I thew in some of our green basil from the garden  as a color compliment to the redness of the tomato.  Just having fun with the plasticity of the oil paint and striving for subtle color variations in the white table to add interest to the simplicity of the composition.
