I have painted eggs in pastel but never in oil...tough little buggers to make interesting. I'm not sure this will go off in the gallery shipment or not, but I thought I would share it with you.
Gosh, I love Colorado! I was coming home from Hobby Lobby (brushes are %50 off until the 29th of Jan, I believe) and as I was heading back west the foothills were getting snow showers. They were drenched in what looked like fog or smoke but it was really snow and then the sun was shining in spots and the color was orange. It was truly amazing.
