5" by 5" daily acrylic painting, unframed painted on wrapped canvas and ready to hang I was looking through my photos to see what I wanted to paint next and found some of eggs which I had taken in the spring and forgot about. For some reason I frequently feel compelled to paint eggs. Part of it is the challenge of capturing the wetness. The other part is a mystery to me. . . eggs might create a metaphor in my subconscious for the primordial ooze.
