Out of the Box

Out of the Box, Acrylic on Gessoboard, 6"x6", NFS
Day 13 of the 30 in 30 Challenge.  I have to admit, I am feeling challenged!  Today I resorted to rummaging through my refrigerator for a subject to paint.  I found a carton of brown eggs which I took upstairs to my studio.  I tried a variety of compositions, and decided on this one for today.  As anyone who paints knows, eggs look like they should be easy to paint, but getting them to look round (or rather oval) is challenging.  I'm using the challenge as an means to improve my palette knife skills.

Today's painting is not for sale. I do have other work that you might like on my web site and in my Daily Paintworks Gallery (click on the icon at right).
