"Eggplant Gang" - SOLD
Click Here to Bid
We have a great farmer's market here in Bastrop, but I hadn't ever made it on the right day or the right time until this last Saturday. I walked in and was immediately drawn to these perfect little eggplants! I picked them up and was exclaiming "how cute!" when the woman behind the table started apologizing for their small size, blaming it on the drought. I said, "oh but they're perfect to paint." She gave me the most quizzical look. I think she thought I was going to paint the outside of them, like give them a smiley face or something. I get this a lot.
Tomorrow I leave for Canada for a week. I plan to post while there - I did some extra paintings this week just for this.
