Splish, splash, a little mater in the glass.

Completely dark room, reflective base, vase of water, open shutter, drop tomato hoping to hit the opening of vase, fire flash manually as tomato hits water, close shutter, clean up spilled water….repeat until you get the perfect splash of tomato. Add Vodka as needed.

No editing required

I am self taught, with an imagination that will not stop. I started drawing as a kid, and dabbled with correspondence art school but never took art in high school or college because I felt it might constrain me. I was wrong, but no crying over spilled milk.
