Three Aubergines

6"X6" Oil on panel

Aubergines, a.k.a. eggplant, I haven't painted them for a while. The middle one is called "graffiti".

Not much more to say really. The plate is "cargo ware" so named because they were imported in huge numbers and were used as ballast in the ships bringing more exotic and expensive goods from the far east. They were hand-painted but quite crude and at one time very cheap. I believe that they are quite collectable now though.
