Keepin’ it loose!

Paul brought these beauties home from the grocery store yesterday, and this morning they were just begging to be painted. So after I worked on a larger landscape for a while, I painted this bitty one, trying to keep it quick and loose. It has a kind of a vintage feel to it, I think.
I really enjoyed it ... I think I’ll have to do more kitchen paintings.
After I painted it I used one of the tomatoes in this for lunch:
It’s chicken spaghetti in a beautiful baking dish my sister gave me for Christmas. When I took it out of the oven it was as pretty as a picture. So I went ahead and made it one.
