I'd never painted an eggplant before and scoured the local grocer to find one that drew my attention to it...and here it is! I am happy with the result.

I've decided to introduce my ANGELS-Guardians From Heaven & Their Habitats book, one angel at a time, each with the inspirational quotation that goes with it until Christmas Eve. I got the idea this morning. There are 30 angel paintings in the book and it is exactly 30 days until Christmas Eve...I just counted....so...you will receive an angel-a-day. May they bring you many blessings.


"Angel Descending"


"Let the soul banish all that disturbs.
Let the Body that envelopes it be still,
And al the frettings of the body,
And all that surrounds it.
Let Earth and sea and air be still
And Heaven itself.
And then let the body think
Of the spirit as streaming, pouring
Rushing and shining into it from
All sides while it stands quiet."
~Plotinus (205AD)

I love the eggplant too! Well, really, all your work! The eggplant really caught my eye, though!
Nicely done!
