A Good Egg

A Good Egg
Egg & Butterfly Simple little project I painted this morning while waiting for the anesthesia
to wear off my face from the "fun" root canal procedure I had this morning.
Bottom half of the rock is covered in wool felt that I glued on.
I painted the egg with my trusty Daler Rowney FW acrylic inks.

such an illusion at first glance
from the first photo it looked like the egg was sitting on the stone and it's painted so beautifully

That is so beautiful! I hope you're feeling better. Root canals are NO fun. Thank you for always sharing such beautiful creations!

Beautiful! Too bad about your dental visit - hope all is well now. Saw the post about your son and the scorpion sting - hope that he is all recovered - and you too!

I will think to you, tomorrow I have root canal.
Lucky it is done for you.
I love those beautiful colors. Actually I would like to find differents eggs . Quails, ostriches, and emu . I have a couple but with time the color is not acid free so the are so dark...
Nature give so beautiful things.
Thanks for sharing

I love your blog it puts a smile on my face every day! Wish I was as inspired as you.

Just had to pass this on - the butterfly in your last photo looks so like the one Rob Ives created - I thought you'd like to see -

Keep making beautiful things.
