006: Palette Knife Tomato
size 11x14 inches
oil on stretched canvas

If this tomato looks a bit off to you, it's because the entire painting was created with a palette knife. "No brushes were dirtied in the creation of this painting." A palette knife is a tool artists sometimes use to create rough, quick paintings. It looks like a thin triangle shaped piece of metal on a handle. It allows paint to be scraped away and thickly applied. The result, as you can see, is heavy texture with a lot of personality. This tomato was picked from my own garden and now that I've painted it I plan on eating it for lunch.
