VeganMoFo: Ode to Summer Tomatoes

Tomato Love is for sale here
Medium: Watercolor on Arches paper
Size: Approximately 5"x7" (image size is 4"x6")
Will fit in 5"x7" frame! Signed on back.
Note: I am doing a painting-a-day challenge for VeganMoFo, and will be creating a new painting of rescue animals or vegan food throughout the month of October, and placing them for sale. All proceeds (minus shipping) will be donated to For the Animals Sanctuary, because they are a pretty super-great non-profit animal rescue and sanctuary, in Blairstown NJ, and are vegan owned and operated. Feeding, housing, and taking care of these animals costs a lot of money, and as a non-profit organization, they rely entirely on donations. Hopefully (with your help!), I'll be able to make a size-able donation at the end of the month!  You can check out all the paintings I have created so far that are still for sale here! 

I get so sad when tomato season comes to an end. They are probably my favorite seasonal fruit or vegetable of all time. I think strawberries are a strong second.  No more fresh tomato sammiches with a little veganaise on crusty bread. No more freshly chopped up tomatoes over pasta. No more eating them plain with a little salt and pepper sprinkled over them.  Goodbye tomatoes; see you in 9 months!

This is a tofu scramble that is lacking in the tofu department...


  1. It's so sad that you guys don't get tomatoes all year round! We do here, they're not always fantastic over winter but at least we have access to them. If I could send you some, I would :)

  2. This is making me hungry! They look so so good! I'm not talking about the painting of course, they are way too cute to eat;)

  3. Thanks ladies!

    Mandee: We do get tomatoes all year round here too, in the grocery stores, but they are not the same! It's almost like a completely different fruit! I just refuse to eat the grocery store tomatoes and wait to savor the summer ones from the farmer's market. :)

  4. That salad looks great, I totally hear ya on non-summer tomatoes being horrible too!

  5. Tomatoes are AWESOME. That salad looks so perfect!

  6. The salad looks wonderful, and the print today is my very favorite!
