Bloomsbury egg

a quick little painting called Bloomsbury egg

the colors are not perfectly solid but there were many layers of paint put on.

my goal was not perfection, just getting the idea on canvas.

i love the shape of an egg. it is so perfect and there is so much symbology behind it.

my first Madonna painting was that of Mary holding an egg.

someday i will share it but, for now it  is in storage.

i found this site that was interesting:

The black fish….after i stamped the fish i thought this is too boring. There is always a unique one in the crowd which brought me to the thought that since i can remember as much as i have wanted to be like the “crowd” somehow even by virtue of doing nothing i never fit the mold. That is ok with me. I feel i am like the tortise in the story of the tortise and hare. I may be slow..but it is my journey……
