Breakfast, 6x6 oil on canvas board


Today is my birthday. Last night before turning in I left myself a note. (I get distracted so easily and I really wanted to try painting an egg today. Last night it seemed like a terrific idea since I came from an egg. and it is my birthday. And I'm an artist. Hmmmn) It said "Paint an egg in a saucer". So here's my egg in a saucer, alla prima. I tried to use a limited number of strokes and count them in advance. I predicted the painting would take 36 strokes. But it took a whopping 86!
Then I ate it.
This painting is for sale on an auction at a starting bid of $49. click to see the auction

  1. Happy Birthday Darlene! Great painting of an egg in a saucer, no matter how many strokes it took. Love the blue shadows!
