Roma Tomatoes

Roma Tomato a plum tomato popularly used both for canning and producing tomato paste because of their slender and firm nature. Commonly found, Roma tomatoes are also known as Italian tomatoes or Italian Plum Tomatoes. Roma tomatoes are egg or pear shaped and red when fully ripe. They have fewer seeds than other varieties which make them good for sauces. This sketch is of 3 tomatoes that varied in color from a very light green to a ripe red/orange.

Cattails

Cattails are wetland plants with a unique flowering spike, flat blade like leaves that reach heights from 3 to 10 feet.  They are one of the most common plants in large marshes and on the edge of ponds. Under the right conditions, cattails can grow and spread vigorously.  The pollinated flowers develop into fluffy seed heads, blowing across a pond in autumn breezes.  Just as commonly, cattails spread through their root system. In fact, cattails at the edge of pond can grow faster than fertilized corn in a field!  Holbein watercolors in a Stillman and Birn Sketchbook.

Cape Rep Theatre

The Cape Rep Theatre was founded in 1986 in Brewster, Massachusetts on Cape Cod. Their current home is the former Camp Monomoy which includes the Indoor Theatre (former Dining Hall), Outside Theatre, Cape House and the Barn shown in this sketch. The Barn was built in in the late 19th century. A current fund raising effort is underway to restore the barn for continued use by Cape Rep. Tonight we saw an amazing performance of Hairspray. Fantastic show and a very talented group of actors and singers. Pilot Falcon fountain pen with Noodler’s Bulletproof black ink and Holbein watercolors in a Stillman and Birn sketchbook.
