Last week we visited my friend Marianne, also a retired art teacher, who has property about 20 miles east of here. They have horses, goats, chickens, and of course dogs. I loved the goats. They're like pets, just walking and staying close to us all the time. Marianne and her husband are raising several different kinds of chickens; who lay different colored eggs. We came home with a dozen eggs of many colors.
Due to the matte finish of eggs, even with a light shining right on them, the reflection is softer, not shiny. These were fun to paint. I'm sure they'll taste great, too.
