hard boiled

A truer title would be rotten eggs.  This set up has been on my still life table for two or three  weeks.  I had some issues with it so I kept it set up.  Went out of town a couple of times, painted other paintings, etc...  I finally got back to it and worked out things that were bugging me.  I wonder how long it would be before the eggs started to smell?  I know some of you guys remember hiding real hard boiled and dyed eggs for Easter. We would not refrigerate them later and would eat them, cracked and all.
This is painted on a 6 x 12" linen canvas.


  1. Bonjour chère amie,

    Une jolie composition... j'aime l'harmonie des couleurs douces qui anime cette peinture.
    A la maison, je dois faire très attention avec les oeufs, mon dalmatien Sir Icarus les adore ! Il n'hésiterait pas à tenter de les voler ! Aussi heureusement qu'il ne se trouvait pas chez toi !

    ❀ Gros bisous ❀

  2. I love the elements of this composition! The palette is perfect!

  3. Beautiful piece, Carol...the bottle is perfect!!
