Don't Call me Yellow 6x6

Click to bid
These cherry tomatoes were bright yellow until they spent so much time under the lights. I THOUGHT I was losing a bit of their yellow-ness and when I turned off the light, I saw that they had, indeed, turned orange.

Still life painting as a method for ripening tomatoes.... Nice! Love these colors, Mary. Your beach photos are wonderful, too. Will there be paintings with those as references? I'm imagining them already!

What juicy painting, Mary! Those complementary colors sure glow.

lovely composition and colours, and laughed at the idea of your tomatoes getting sunburnt under the lights:)r.

I love it! I've had that happen, too, with different things, and you think you're going CRAZY! I love the background you set them on, it really makes the tomatoes pop.
