Self portrait with Tomatoes

September 6th, 2015 Leave a comment Go to comments

mimipomodoriIt was time to do another self portrait, so I dressed up as a peasant. This summer Seattle (where I live) had more tomatoes that grew and ripened than any year since I’ve been here. My ancestors grew tomatoes in Southern Italy (and my cousins still do) so this painting represents my grandmothers and their grandmothers who grew, harvested and preserved tomatoes every year.

    An endearing tribute to your forebears. 🙂
