Nibbles and Notes - Day 5

Did you know that tomatoes contain lycopene that prevents some forms of cancer by lessening the damage caused by free radicals?

Did you know that a medium sized tomato contains an average of just 10 calories?
Making them the ideal, healthy snack...Which is exactly what they became for me this afternoon.

After finishing my tomato sketch in the studio, I decided the view was just too tempting and made a quick sketch of that too!

These tomatoes are just perfect, bright and luscious!

Glad to think my love of tomatoes will keep me healthy!!! but I think if anything its the colour on a plate of food that gets to me. Recognized the sketched view immediately. Love your column this week too - so inspiring for you to add such a good portrait of yourself and tell the Maruman X flying sketchbooks story to your public. .. letting them know how diverse you are in your artwork. .. and an international artist to boot.

Nine coffee cups! Oops?
Love the food sketch, with its great colors and luscious (first time I use this word - I make a wish) tomatoes!

Guess I am finally finding a home as your non-inhabited landscape makes me long for home - vacations aren't always relaxing like an empty landscape is.

Tomatoes are one of my favorites to eat and paint! We have had a samonella scare here in the US the past month so I have been very cautious in where I eat them from. I guess I should think about growing my own!
BTW, your blog is making me fat!

A picture is worth a thousand words...sure true of the little landscape.
How much time do you spend scanning - posting a day? Amazing how much you have to share with us!
