    lovely juicy pastel Dianne….I don’t eat ‘tommies’ but this makes me think I should!

  • Thanks LInda! My son loves tomatoes but I still can’t get my girls to eat them.

    Great minds work alike, I’ve got a painting from a couple of years ago that I gave the same name. Mine was a large colender full of tomatoes. Yours are so beautiful. Nice work Dianne.

  • Thanks Jim! First pelicans and now tomatoes lol! I had a few titles running through my head. Didn’t even occur to me that someone had used the same. I’m going to have to go and check out yours now :)
