Time for Eggs

Egg Challenge

Duck Visits Egg   6" x 6"   oil on gessoboard
 I have seen paintings by other artists of a broken egg on a plate and thought that might be a good challenge.
Capturing that "wet" look is interesting, but the most difficult part was the egg shell.  I added one of my nasturtium flowers and leaf to give a spark of color.  The blueberries are freshly picked from my blueberry bush outside my studio door!  They are really good and make interesting shapes.

Here is my 3rd Daily Painting Still life with an egg.  I added the white tea cup, ceramic tea bag holder and flowers.  A fun collection of shapes, colors and textures!
