Tomato Season is Over

Tomato Season is over for Northdixie Designs for this year after I finish the painting I have in process. I'm sure my family will be breathing a collective sigh of relief. Grin.

The Tomato people were a way of me working on gathering the feeling of a folk art portrait without faithfully copying an old one. I knew if I tried to paint people first that I would get all tight and perfectionistic with it and they would have no soul. Hence Tomato People. I think I'm going to try to do a few people portraits now. We'll see. I did a Red Riding Hood painting that Denise of WildThread Studios purchased - you can see it above. I feel that I'm growing in my painting - I used to paint somewhat differently and once I get through this stage of exploration I'm hoping to see a synthesis from the brushy way I used to paint and the flat explorations of folk art portraits.
