Roasted Eggplant

Gouache on map of Eggplant slices
 I roasted slices of eggplant and enjoyed seeing the curls and hooks that show up when the slices are roasted.  The marks reminded me of shorthand, that old method of quickly recording someone's dictation. In high school some girls took classes in Pittman shorthand and it was fascinating to see those squiggles that unbelievably meant something.
Nature does give us some nice designs.  I have scanned the baked eggplant slices here because I like the hooks and curls that show up when the cross section seed area is browned.  I laid them on some washed cellophane and scanned the actual slices in the image above.
