Last of the Tomatoes


The house is too cold now so I have been taking refuge in a nice warm place on a chair in the back patio to sit for a fast sketch while enjoying a break from everyday activities. Behind this chair is the tomato plant that has given me tomatoes all summer. Now, with the shortening of the daylight, the tomato blooms are setting less fruit so these may be the last tomatoes of summer.

The house is too cold? Wow! I know it's October, but that's still hard to believe!

Love your cozy corner - it looks like the perfect place to curl up with a book or a sketchbook!

Oh, I love this! It reminds me a little of Casey Toussaint's work. As for the temperature.... I am SO happy that one of the results of a lightning strike early in the summer resulted in my properly insulating my attic. What a difference!

Really lovely end-of-summer painting Pat - it looks so sunny and inviting! We are getting our first Hot day today, so they say... 30°C - and I haven't planted any tomatoes yet!

So cozy chair is it. You're one of the luckiest people in the world to have fruits and vegitable grown in your garden. I enjoy your lovely works produced from your real life.

Like the tomatoes themselves, this watercolor is good enough to eat. I sighed out loud when it unfolded on my computer screen.
