Mini Egg - SOLD

Click Here to Bid

This is the last mini one for a while. I thought I'd paint one of my favorite subjects - a broken egg. Usually I am able to break them open so the shell is in 2 perfect pieces. This time things went awry, but I liked it.

This is so wonderfully abstract, yet instantly recognizable. The subtle color shifts of those yellows and gray-pinks is just fantastic.

Yes!!!! I really like it. The egg looks so eggy and the shells create such a wonderful abstract surround. I love the little purple triangle shadow at the upper right.

From a distance, this looks like a larger painting. It's magic how you can capture so much detail with so few brush strokes. Great work, Carol.

Such a small painting has such a big spirit. I know it is 4" square but it seems like it is 4'! It is a little egg with a big abstract personality. I love it.

I would love to see you do a larger painting done using gianormous house painting brushes.. That would be cool.

I can't get enough of these egg paintings. It's beautiful all the way around but my favorite little spots are the shadowy purple blues in the eggshells.
Slammin'!

I love this picture! I feel like I'm in the kitchen baking. So simple yet so pretty!
