|Brown Egg Blue Egg|
9 x 12
Pastel on Wallis Paper
When I was thinking of names for this painting, Dr Seuss came to mind - One Fish Two Fish Red Fish Blue Fish. But I could never fit such a thing on a name card in a booth, so I went with Brown Egg Blue Egg. Thank you to my friend Sandy M and her "girls". I am constantly amazed with the volume these gals put out. I am particularly intrigued with the different colors of brown, tan, and of course blue.
I fiddled with this painting quite some time. Sometimes, I just have to stop fiddling. It's a hard thing to know when a painting is done. Often, I take a photo and find something I don't like. The camera is my tool - it helps with getting that long view and finding those little things that sometimes we don't see when we are too close to the work. Standing back is important too, and sometimes, just putting down the sticks and walking away.
