I have discovered figs at 71 years old. Never too late. I saw a 17th century still life painting with them and decided to try a 2016 version. Later on this month some will be available for prints up to 36in by 36 in. I’ve got another small carton of figs to photograph waiting patiently on the counter. My Italian hairdresser told me to slice the fig in half and press an almond in the center of one half and then attach the other half like a sandwich and bake it in oven for 20 minutes. So far, I haven’t eaten one of them. Later this month, I’ll post a series I did following cataract surgeries. In between eye drops, I’d look at roses in gardens and at the store and see eyes. Everywhere, eyes.
