Here's a recent still life I've been working on, "Eggstraordinary". I had been looking for eggplant locally (to paint of course) and have not been able to find it. (I guess it's not in season?) Luckily, I came across a box of lovely eggplant at the San Clemente Farmers Market on Sunday when I was hosting the gallery there. I could hardly wait to get back to my studio to paint it! I had this beautiful orange silk handy to wrap it with in this cute little dish that my friend accidentally left at my house months ago!
Now, I better cook something with eggplant in it pretty quick!


  1. I love eggplant to eat... and really love your painting as well.. Inspiring, Rita!!

  2. Thanks Marian! So do I! We had Eggplant Parmesan for dinner last night! It was almost as much fun as painting it!
