I thought I was very clever. I taped the tomatoes on a painted canvas board so I could have a different background color... Not two minutes went by after I finished drawing this arrangement and the tomatoes dropped off the board. The tape could not hold the weight so I had to reinforce it with a tack. Good thing the tomatoes didn't break off the stem.
I don't know why I would call this a Still Life...as soon as I hung them up for the second time I noticed....the tomatoes started sagging and the leaves started curling. I thought the painting gods were ganging up on me.
Almost finished. If I ...I mean if the tomatoes could just hang on a few more minutes.

I can't go to my grave knowing I may be the future subject of an art major's term paper.... so I took the tack out.
I am so conventional.
