If you've followed me for any period of time, you know I love the paintings of a California based artist named Barbara Andolsek. Despite the fact that we've never met, we've become quite good friends over the internet, one of the delightful and rewarding benefits of the 21st century. Barbara sources the subjects of her paintings all over, as she has a keen eye and a life-loving spirit, and I'm hugely complimented by the fact that she has chosen to paint a number of my photographs. I'm always surprised and thrilled to see them on her blog, which I encourage you all to follow.
Once again Barbara has painted one of the images posted to Open-Window just last month. She calls it "Meaty Tomato" and rightly so because that's exactly what that beautiful heirloom was. I hope you enjoy this as much as I do.
