Tomato in bowl Daily Oil Painting

Okay, if you do this right you post the failures as well as the successes. So today's painting is somewhere in the middle of those two ends of the spectrum. I started this in Austin and then finished it yesterday. I don't know if it was because it was from the photo and I just coldn't get the feel of it or what, but it's just not the best I have ever produced. I do like some things about it, though. It is 6x8 oil.

I got word yesterday, for those of you who are following this sort of thing, that I did not get chosen for the Shrimp Festival poster. Can't win 'em all. But I told the lady it will make a great paint-over abstract, because I love the colors in it. She was appropriately dismayed that Salvadore would be no more, but I think she will be able to get over it.

I also got word from my friends in Baton Rouge that my Wine Festival art had been used in the Baton Rouge newspaper. Evidently I was identified as the artist, because my friends received phone calls from other friends alerting them to this news. I do so wish that we could attend this one, but we are leaving for Denver that day. Bummer.

I think the elipse is just slightly off on the rim off the bowl, otherwise it's a good painting.
