There are so many heirloom tomatoes and so many interesting names for them. Lovely, dark colors, reds and greens, yellow and almost blacks. Interesting just to look at them all. I wanted to view some of the varities since I'm still painting on my Utah Heirlooms - those we saw and purchased the last time we were in Salt Lake City. They had a huge outdoor market and the tomatoes tasted as good as they looked. I have an artist friend whose husband grows them, too. And they are so good - like the tomatoes my grandmother fed me as a child.
I'm changing up the colors - not all dark red with green striped, as the photo shows. Sweetie has trained me not to be so picky and taste the yellow tomatoes, too. So far, I haven't tried a green one - or a black one.
Went out today to meet the coordinator of the Art After Hours Sweetie and I have been invited to - we will show our work at the Ft. Thomas branch of the library in July. We picked out our spots and need to decide how many paintings/photos to show.
I also mailed out my cd for the WACC 2013 juried show - I have 2 entries and hope one gets in. If not, I'm not out more than the cost of the cd and check for entry (I am not going to mat and frame either one until I know one got in.)
