(116) Make Mine Scrambled
private collection
6 x 6, oil
I was enthralled by how the ripples of light bounced into the egg whites and on through the clear glass onto the tabletop--sort of like a play-within-a-play.

Great glass and reflections, Faye. And the shape of the yolk is perfect. That quote is definitely a keeper. Do you ever find the quote first and then paint something for it? It would be interesting to have several artists take a quote like that and then paint their own inspirations from it and see what happens. As always, thanks for sharing with us your art and words of inspiration.

Usually I paint first and find a quote later, but it was the other way around today with the George Clooney quote--as soon as I found that I knew I had to paint ice cream! I like your idea of having several artists paint their inspirations based on a common quote--great idea!
