My farmer must have gotten some new chickens recently. His last delivery included two of the most beautiful little pale green eggs. I'm not sure what breed of hen that would be, I'll have to ask him when I see him in a few weeks.

I thought I could knock this painting out in a couple hours, but it took me 4 or 5 before I was happy with the egg carton. NOT what I had planned, especially when I have other paintings in my studio that need attention!

That being said, I am happy with how this turned out. I love the individuality of the eggs, sitting in the uniformity of the carton.

This is a subject I'm pretty passionate about. Visit to find family farmers who don't "factory farm" their animals. Healthier for us, for the animals, and for the environment.
