The Great Tomato Escape
What in the world? I opened the blinds this morning to see this…..
A not quite ripe tomato hanging on out on the gate handle. Some blemishes, but no bite marks, just hanging out. I'm guess a squirrel hauled it up there on to the perfect eating platform.. Either that or the tomato was on it's way to jumping the gate for the Great Tomato Escape….
This would make for a odd painting. Lots of contrasts: soft tomato, hard wood gate, dull gate, bright colorful tomato….Would the more philosophical among us read symbolism into a painting of a tomato on a gate handle? Or would it just be a weird painting? Or could I turn into a children's art by painting it in a whimsy style and creating a story around it? Or take it in the opposite direction and lean it into a Salvador Dali like surreal art ? Something to think about…… : ) Have a wonderful weekend!
