Illustration Friday--- "Crash"

As I was setting up this still-life, one of the eggs rolled off the edge of the railing & landed on the front porch. As I prepared to spatula up the mess, I realized I had a better composition than before & decided to use the broken egg before chucking it, resulting in "Egg Plant"...




This is watercolor on clayboard, sprayed with an acrylic uv varnish finish. (available for sale!)

Absolutely fantastic. I love the light and shadows, and the broken egg makes the whole piece. Love it.

This is awesome & I love how you just went with it. This reminds me of the Scott Adams quote. "Creativity is allowing yourself to make mistakes. Art is knowing which ones to keep." You know your art!
