I love the imperfections of the tomato - it evokes so much - like the imperfections of life - and the knife cutting in and the juices oozing. I wish I was sitting around your lunch table this afternoon. Hope it's not as hot as it is in drought ridden California. We're all waiting for brush fires this year.

C'est magique!

Bring on some crusty bread....those tomatoes look like they are still warm from the garden sun....
A very yummy painting...
Thank you...

What a luscious tomato! I agree with Tina J about those imperfections. This is a gorgeous painting, Julian. And, yes, also being a Californian, it is so hot here and dry, I can hardly stand it. Since today is the 4th of July, I am afraid for brush fires, too. Be thankful that you are in France!
