Tomato Special


Yes this is a special tomato, it's the first of my tomato crop of this year.  Of course a tomato can't go anywhere without it's best mate Basil!  So both were immortalised for posterity in my sketchbook then I ate the tomato with  an omelette made from fresh eggs from my friend Gabriella's hens.  A simple  but wonderful meal and all homegrown.

Dear Cathy, these are the symbols of Summer in the kitchen for me! By the things you say, I can tell that you have a healthy, enviable lifestyle...
Beautiful colours and very good technique, as usual!

Yummy! I'm envious. I haven't seen any tomatoes in my garden yet, but they'll come. Lovely drawing.

Mmmm, I can smell them both just by seeing your sketch. Those simple meals are the best.

There's nothing better than home-grown Cathy, and the first of the season are a real treat.
A nice addition to your sketchbook.

Ah, lucky you to be able to eat your own homegrown produce! The drawings are awesome! I'm admiring the shadows under the tomato especially...

Simply beautiful, and I have never seen a tomato with so many curves before, this one sure looks like a cross between a tomato and a pumpkin =)
