'Young Eggplant' and Exhibit Details

Here is my little silent auction entry for the upcoming exhibit; a young eggplant plant shyly displaying its first blossom. The colors of these plants are so striking in the garden, especially at this 'adolescent' stage.

Also, I wanted to share the details of the show, which opens this Saturday at the Spring Bull Gallery in Newport, Rhode Island.

An absolutely lovely drawing. I hope it serves to motivate me and others!

Why, thank you Albert. Neither the little eggplant nor I had motivation in mind, but, we'd be happy to serve!
