In the Glass  oil  8x6

The second egg painting. I was so enthusiastic that I did three today. I'll be posting them in the next few days.

We went to a little film this evening on women cartoonists.  In celebration of Linda Barry, I put the egg in a glass on a patterned background I created.  I call them "Pook" patterns.  Years ago I received a set of ceramic dishware with patterns glazed on- they became known as the Pook Plates.  All broken and gone now, but not forgotten. I usually paint the pattern first and then the surrounding color.  That way you can pick up the edges of the pattern in each additional stroke and integrate it as a whole.
