Odd Fellows



Oddfellows 5x7" Oil on canvas

Hard to believe... but true! Walking through our weekly "French Market" here in town, this eggplant caught my eye. Yes, it looks as if it has grown a nose ... a rather cartoonish one at that! It was so unique, I had to bring it home to paint. So, here it is for all to see! Humor can be found everywhere! Even in a vegetable patch!
(Oh, we took a digital photo of it too ~ but are struggling with technical issues between my camera and computer! Maybe I'll be able to post it soon.)

I love all your paintings but this one's really great and funny! Nice shinny skin and lovely blue shadows. Keep up the great work:)

How fun, doesn't God have a great sense of humor?

the textures and shadows in this are very subtle, and that's a great nose!
