I needed to step out of my comfort zone. My usual color scheme is cool. If you look at my work, most of it has blue color in it. Today I had to stay away from it. I used it to mix some of my dark colors, but it is hard to tell because of their dark values. I like how it turned out. The painting feels warm. So nice when it rains outside like today.

Do you know that tomato was known as the "love apple" when it was introduced to Europe and it was considered an aphrodisiac. Today, the tomato is the most widely consumed vegetable on the planet.
