Eggplant

Oil on canvas panel, 6x6 -- Commission

Here is the final painting of a five-painting commissioned series.  The eggplants at my nearby grocery store were pathetic; hence photos and two previous eggplant paintings I've done were my references.  (Unfortunately, that means there is nothing for me to eat!!!) The photo of the artwork (above) does not do justice to the rich, deep jewel tones of the flesh;  trust me, though, they are there.
