Lunchtime doodle

Last week I was making lunch, and sliced a tomato through horizontally. The centre core looked like some kind of muscular organ, and the seeds appeared alien for some reason. It was as though I'd discovered a hidden universe. I drew it in pencil, and ate it. Later that day I went over my sketch in a permanent fineliner, and played around with watercolour. I didn't like the background I'd painted in, so I cut it out instead. Interesting.

Wow ! to think a universe existed in a cross section of a tomato! This is what I call imagination! Nice work!

Did you know the fleshy bit in the middle of a tomato - the bit all the seeds are attached to - is called the placenta?

Thanks Sadia. I checked out your site, with some mind-blowing art.
Mel, that's just plain weird.
