Can taste the sunshine..and good soil
Looks like I can pluck that tomato right off my screen for dinner!
Looks juicy and gorgeous!
This is the first close-up portrait of a solitary tomato among all the still life of julian since the beginning. Because maybe it speaks of "heart", symbol of life, vitality and love...
... And in "dreammoods.com", it is said that: "to see a tomato in your dream symbolizes domestic happiness and harmony. To dream that you are eating tomatoes foretells of good health." I think this painting will be certainly like a positive talisman for the lucky buyer...
I love the glazed colours coming through the tomato fruit. A lovely painting.
