Fried Eggs

"Fried Eggs"
10" x 10" oil on panel

This is part of my egg series.  I love a good 
breakfast in the morning and the sunny
color of egg yolks against the black
of the skillet is appealing.

10" x 6" oil on panel

I love eating fresh produce during the late summer. 
My friend, Natacha plucked these from her garden. 
They were so sweet and succulent that I wanted 
to remember them.

I couldn't find a straight pin to fasten them to
the wall so I used a safety pin. I was going to edit
it out but I thought it added character 
to the painting.

Eggs In A Blue Bowl

"Eggs In A Blue Bowl"
10" x 10" oil on panel

Another painting in my "egg" series.  In this series
I am learning about value steps. The degree
of darkness between the light areas of an egg 
and shadow side are very subtle.

Eggs In A Basket

"Eggs In A Basket"
12" x 12" oil on panel

I photographed these eggs while shooting pictures in a friend's 
garden. He had chickens who laid eggs that were multi-colored.
I simply  had to paint the beautiful soft colors.
