Paint Tomatoes – Peel Potatoes

cherry tomatoes, garden, green, red, summer, tomato, tomato painting, vegetables


How to survive in this busy life; how to manage the day between work and house chores ? I was thinking about this the other day. Especially it is becoming obvious when person is working from home studio and has access to the kitchen 24/7. No I am not talking about overeating (this is the subject of some other blog) I am talking about dividing the house work and the Artist job in a good balanced way. I am still learning. I’ve recently became a full time Artist and a full time Fine Art student. Yes, being an artist practically all my life (including a childhood of course) I’ve given a tremendous opportunity to receive an Art degree here in America (just for myself! not for Mom, not for Society, just for me).. I just need to grab this opportunity from the right end and keep up with the busy schedule.

The painting above is my attempt to paint our garden Cherry Tomatoes while cooking potatoes in the kitchen. Literally! I believe that the painting is usually caring what the artist thinks: I was really hungry painting those cuties. Tomatoes are always inspiring me by their bright color and almost perfect forms.
