I couldn't resist this eggplant from the farm stand. They are such a beautiful color. The farmer asked me how I was going to cook it and I said that I hadn't thought about it because I was buying it to paint later. He said "Wow, some other artist just came a half an hour ago and bought three big eggplants to paint too. You find something inspirational in these?" Huh. It surprised me that HE didn't find them inspirational or beautiful. He did tell me to fry it like a zucchini - which was good. It makes me happy that I am fortunate enough see the beauty in ordinary things. I think I will give him this painting. :)
