Duck Egg Collection

I had some egg orders to paint last week and as it turns out, it is easier to paint multiples of a design, rather then one at a time.

These are all duck eggs with the exception of the Hummingbird pin with the ribbon, that is a goose egg shell. It happened to be lots of fun taking photos of them in a grouping as well, as you would see them if they were in a collection.

The Little Spring Blue Bird has been very popular on pins and turkey eggs so I thought he deserved a duck egg of his own so he could really go on desplay.

Likewise for the Hummingbird, I was doing a custom order for a pin so I thought I might as well paint him on a duck egg as well.

Just last week I got in an order of these great acrylic stands. They hold the duck egg beautifully and altogether, make a beautiful display.

I also painted a couple of rose eggs as they have been popular on pins and duck eggs alike. This way I will have a couple in stock. I'm slowing getting them all listed on my ETSY shop today.

Next post I'll be showing a watercolor that I started months ago and had put down for awhile. You've probably long forgotten about it by now. I finished it just yesterday though and I'm pleased with the way it turned out.
