Tomato...Tomahto. My original "Tea Time" painting!
Here in Tennessee, we have what we call the "Tomato Festival" every year. I know, sounds pretty darn southern, which it is. Nashville puts on this festival in order to promote their agriculture as well as local artists.
Well this past festival, I was chosen to be a featured artist! My task? I had to paint an original painting and it HAD to be tomato themed.
How am I going to make a tomato interesting and also unique and clever?
I honestly have no clue how the idea of a tomato tea pot came to me, but it did in all its glory. I wanted to share the progression of the painting as well as it hanging up at the festival amongst it's other tomato painting friends.
