Ode the the natural Egg
By Cassie Grace
Egg, Oh how I love your brown shelled tones,
'Specially without all those Hormones.
You are so tasty in my pound cake.
Just eight of you it takes to make
If only store eggs were more like you,
except for the eggs covered in poo!
As you may notice, none of the eggs here are brown. I found that often, my brown eggs were being mistaken for potatoes, so thus the iconic white egg.
The design behind the red-head is supposed to be Mucha-esque, but most folks seem to think its a fancy plate.....sigh....
I seem to have lost this middle one in my move to Texas. I'd really like to display it with the others. It is a play on the painting called "Circe" by JW Waterhouse
This one is patterned after some of James C. Christensen. The long neck, profile woman and the checkerboard are some of the characteristics I borrowed from his work. All of these pieces were an experiment. I painted acrylic on particle board then finished with oil. I wanted to try on other artist's motif's the way little girls try on their mother's clothes. It was fun, and now FINALLY done.
