on my desk monday

Even though I really don't have time, I'm painting another egg:

Like I said, I should be doing other thing but I couldn't say no. It's just been such a fun tradition for me and anyway, it's a good warm-up for the Ling and Ting paintings, right? Oh yeah, a good cause too. 

I wanted to go  in and do some more detailing but I just ran out of time (even though they sent me the egg about 6 months ago!). I still think it's okay, though. I'm calling it "Eggshell China."  Fine Chinese porcelain is often referred to as eggshell china, so I though I'd paint my interpretation of the traditional longevity pattern found on plates and teapots on an actual eggshell. Get it? Eggshell China?

Okay, I admit I am a little sleep-deprived.

Anyway,  here are some better shots of it:

I hope it makes lots of money for Open Fields!
