  24. allow me to join the chorus...it is an outstanding piece..I love everything about it..it particular how the red of the tablecloth is so muted next to the beautiful red of the tomatoes. And...it would be a fabulous piece to show students who don't quite grasp color temperature. Bravo! outrageously good.
