Still Life of Egg and Japanese Lanterns

"Egg with Japanese Lanterns"

Oil on Linen Board, 8" x 6"

Eggs are nature's wonder. They're the perfect food, have a wonderful shape, come in many colors, and flavors, if you count chocolate. And...they're wonderful to paint. They glow from within.  I have a farmer girl for one of my students and she brings me fresh eggs. This one had a very slight green cast to it that intrigued me. I kind of hung on to it for future paintings. It has its own little spot in the fridge.  It would probably be dreadful to eat by now, but it's still lovely to paint. The Japanese Lanterns were a gift from a good friend. Thank you, Anne!
