The every now and then paintings of a high school art teacher who wishes she were a daily painter.

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!
