Vine Ripened Cherry Tomatoes

Vine Ripened Cherry Tomatoes © Evelyn Howard 2010This is a piece for Twenty Minute Challenge.

I love Cherry Tomatoes. When I was young, my Mom gave me a tomato whenever she returned from the market. It would be the juiciest of all the tomatoes she bought that morning. I don’t remember if they were particularly sweet or tasty, but they were special. Now, when I buy tomatoes, I seek out vine ripened tomatoes because they have more flavour.

These tomatoes were purchased last night. They are so pretty that I just wanted to paint them. But it was a challenge for me to complete this piece in 20 minutes. I found myself scrambling and slapping on the paint towards the end! Perhaps I was too ambitious. But I do like the result – green and red go so well together.

Great choice. I loved them from the garden when I was a kid. Now it is the only tomato we can grow in our garden...something about it being too cold for others in the summer. Matti
