Above: The decaying eggplant I've been keeping in my refrigerator to sketch. Pentel Pocket Brush Pen and Schmincke gouache. In a 7 x 9 inch journal I made with Magnani Annigoni Designo paper, turned on its side (gutter at the bottom of the image). This was the last page in this journal.

If there hadn't been a dog in the house as I typed this (it was Saturday and he was eating breakfast) I would have beem sketching this eggplant one more time—despite what Dick said when I sketched it on the 7th.
I think I have one more go at it. We'll see if it's still around when my house guest (only here for 2 days) departs.
