Botkin Challenge for Eggplant!

The secret is out of the bag...we are all posting our paintings TODAY! This was my month for the challenge idea, and since it was our second 'formal' challenge we were a bit late with the communication about the March subject. On the fly I came up with an eggplant...not very original, but everyone stepped up to the plate for it.

What a group! From super-realism to the wacky and insane. Of course, everyone knows where I fall. Stopped at the store on the way home on thursday evening to find an eggplant...this oddly shaped one fit perfectly with what I had been thinking about. I love vegetables with personality!

First up is my effort:

I adore the sketch from your sketch book - you should illustrate something!

Viki, you have been busy! You're making my head spin!! I love your chicken with the eggplant. I will have to tell my daughter to check this one out. She raises chickens and just started painting them. Love your work!

2 busy...missed the sushi challenge ... couldn't think of anything as cute as your cat! Plan to be back next time. Also, am new blogmeister of La Bonne Etoile which is coming live sometime next week. AND trying to paint 5--6 hours a week.

Thanks for the kudos!

You're such a clever girl, dear Vicki! What fun you had with this Challenge! I would love to see more of these whimsical plays on words.

My title in the marketing company we had for 10 successful years was 'Epiphany Catalyst'. I am so glad to see that you broke out of the mold this is really fun on this side of the line!
