Aubergine

If you remember my posting from Dec 16, 2008 called Cinderella, you will recall I mentioned that a friend of mine loves to collect shoes. She graciously loans me a pair now and then to use as props in my paintings.  I wanted to use a veggie with these shoes and it was her suggestion to try an eggplant.  So off I went to the Strathcona Farmers Market here in Edmonton to buy one.

This shapely little aubergine was up for the challenge as she posed on her toes like a ballerina next to these sage green Arnold Churgin shoes (a fabulous shoe store in Calgary).  Fabulous design can be found in nature as well as man made objects...
