Day 4 of 31 Days of Art:
Tomato People Paintings

I make tomato people paintings sometimes as a bridge between projects.  Originally I made one because I wanted to flip around the colors in an Ammi Phillips painting.   I like making these - they are a bit tongue in cheek.  But I try to give them dignity as well.   I have one in process and he is really need of rescuing.  I took the picture when the paint was wet so the color is different than it looks in real life.

 Poor Tomato Boy.   He needs some fixing. 

So I've repainted some and will work on him tomorrow again.
If I don't feel good after the next session of painting 
I will begin a new tomato person painting. 

Tomorrow will tell.
