10% of the profits from the sale of this painting will be donated to Heifer International (www.heifer.org) to buy laying hens for the hungry.

I am really enjoying painting eggs.  This still life was set up in warm light and has cool shadows.  The beige eggs that are a warm color were a real challenge to paint.  The shadows on the eggs needed to be painted a cool(ish) color while still maintaining the eggs appearance of being - well - egg shaped.  : )

It looks like I have started a series of egg paintings without knowing I would create a series.  This is number four.   I will post number one tomorrow.................... Yes, number one.
