Painting No. 128 - Listada de Gandia (Green)

8" x 8" - Oil on Canvas Board
Available for Purchase

Leslie recently went down to visit her mom and brought back a bunch of these little light purple eggplants. They were probably 1/4 of the size of what you see in the grocery store and had these white stripes all through them. I looked it up and they are an Italian variety called Listada de Gandia which sounds much cooler than eggplant. Italians are great at making everyday things sound amazing.

After all those sepia toned paintings from last month I think I wanted to get some color on the canvas. Same issue with the loose nature of this one. I was tired of making things so tight and wanted to give this a little more life.
