There are so many varieties of eggplants!

I love long three day weekends!  Who doesn't?  We ran to the farmer's market and I found these wonderful eggplants.  There were so many different kinds to choose from.  I have been looking for white ones but can't find them.  I'll have to grow them next year.

Saturday Morning

So I got up this morning with the intentions of making fig preserves with the 3 quarts of figs we have picked. But Pete brought in a beautiful eggplant from the garden an laid it on the counter. I have been meaning to paint one for weeks, but we keep eating them. So I grabbed the new eggplant (and a green apple); threw it on a yellow cloth and whipped out the paints. I told myself to paint as quickly as I could - keep it loose and spontaneous and Voilà!

Last Painting of the Summer

I have to go back to work tomorrow.  I have painted quite a bit this summer and hope to continue the momentum.  This is a painting of my granddaughter Emma on the 4th of July. I worked from a photo that I took at my daughter's house.  They had a huge party in their cul-de-sac with lots of neighbors and friends and family of neighbors. My daughter has no idea who this other little girl is.
