5″ x 5″ unframed pastel Joy of Cooking Egg painting

Day sixteen of 30 paintings in 30 days.
I’m always photographing eggs in different setups. There are many shots in my files of eggs. The reference  photo for this painting was one I took many years ago.  I was taking shots of the egg on a glass plate on top of fabric but I didn’t want to spend the time painting the fabric, so I grabbed the classic cookbook, Joy of Cooking, and it worked visually. Eggs are definitely one of my favorite foods to paint.

    I have tried to comment on several of your paintings. I hope this one works.

    Love your work and this egg is just beautiful. The translucency is amazing.
