Easy...not


We should all learn to kill that little voice in our art brain that goes, "Oh, I know! I'll paint a (insert name of object)...it looks easy." This eggplant kicked my ass. I (hope that I) will never again underestimate the difficulty of painting an object that has a simple shape and color and looks easy.



Sold.

It's the absolute essence of an eggplant. Really well done.
You kicked IT'S behind.

Thanks, Bonnie! I really felt like I had done physical battle for 3 hours after I finally conceded to it. :)

I love it. But you're right, it's the 'easy' things that are so hard! So why not go right for the impossible things?

I know where you're coming from - I lost a battle with an onion.
Still, I love your aubergine and your blog.
