While walking through the Raleigh Farmer's Market, we were struck by the artfully displayed arrangement of different eggplants! From size to shape to color -- white, pink, blush, blue/purple, lavender, deep purple -- the display immediataely caught our attention!

We bought several pounds of the eggplant and yesterday, C made them into some scrumptious Eggplant Parmesan!

Was just thinking this morning that lots of bloggers now paint eggplants (it IS the season, of course) and here I find yours! They're a wonderful subject, aren't they? I made eggplant pasta sauce for our dinner last night and it was delish. I know C's eggplant parmesan was too!
Sweet sketch, Ms Lin.
