Power Breakfast


Click Here to Bid

This is my example painting for this week's Daily Paintworks challenge: the Paint Your Breakfast Challenge! I fibbed a little since I don't eat bread ... or fruit, actually. But I do eat plenty of eggs. In fact I wish I could have painted this morning's breakfast. It was called something like Phil's Cheeseburger Attack Omelet. Only in Texas. : )

Love this especially the egg yolk...

You should have! I'd be drooling over something called a Cheeseburger Attack Omelet. Mmmmmm!

Love the way you paint raw eggs. That's always been one of your most spectacular subjects - the texture of white and yolk, the exact hue of the liquid and its sense of thick liquidity, thick-and-thin, the slippery yolk, the fragile shells coming up through it. This is one of your best.

Thank you!

I love all the lightness in this palette. So fresh and light. It makes me think of spring.

What? all those orange wedges gone to waste.. And you don't eat bread? Philistine!

Nice painting though.

Carol,
Your work blows me away. Do you ever do canine portrait commission? Take a look at my blog, you'll see my boy named Boone. Chocolate Labrador.

Kind regards,
Chris
