Library Exhibit and Too Many Tomatoes
Whew! My paintings are finally all framed and hung at the Glen Ellyn Library for the month of September. As most artists know, getting one's work ready for a show is usually more work than actually painting. I'm one of those artists who would rather be in the studio, happily creating, than anything else.
I like how my husband hung my paintings. He cleverly separated my Impressionist work from my Tonalist work. I think he did a great job.
We had some extra space at the end, near the wall. So I thought I'd bring in some of my older pastel work. Of course, soft pastels need to be under glass, so all you see is glare in some of these.
Here's a sample of just a few of the tomatoes we have on hand right now. There are many more bags in the downstairs refrigerator. There's always a HUGE influx of tomatoes at this time of year. These are too small to make tomato sauce. I was thinking of making batches of salsa and freezing them. Does anyone have any more ideas on what to do with all these tomatoes?
