Once again, the beauty of the ordinary captured my attention. After placing a luscious eggplant into my shopping cart, followed by a bright tomato, my focus changed and I knew that dinner plans were supplanted by the need to use these beautiful veggies as models rather than ingredients in ratatouille. By adding a head of fragrant garlic, I completed a compostion that was great fun to paint. 'Ratatouille' is 3.5" x 5" in acrylic. Of course with a few more ingredients, they all did double duty at dinner.
