Oh happy plates - food styling project

Tomatoe goes art
I had some fun in my studio lately, playing with my camera and gorgeous red tomatoes - one of my fave summer food.  With these pix, i'm participating in the "Oh hapy plates" food styling project by lovely Ald, from Al dente gourmet, to learn more about styling food and making it look even better in your photos. 

You see, i'm quite a foodie and love to combine my painting skills wiih my love for yummy treats. This also comes in handy when it comes to create recipe pages for my magazine, KidsLife.  I think, these cherry tomatoes doa great job in juicing up my art books, what do you think?
Have a super cool and easy weekend  lovelies!

  8. My darling friend,

    Your visit and kind words mean the world to me. Summer is coming to an elegant close; even my dead flowers in their pots have a certain beauty that will eventually take the turn of all things no longer living, but for now, there is a change in the air, and I love it. But what is fascinating is the love and light from within that never burns out because of the eternal flame that lights it. Thank you for your creative spirit and kind friendship! ENJOY YOUR WEEKEND!! Anita
