Decorated Egg
















(Acrylic and Gesso)

I mulled over various ideas of how to decorate my egg for this assignment...and finally settled on the idea of an 'egg baby'. The 'egg baby' is kind of a play on words - the egg being the precursor to a baby and the idea that the egg needs to be 'babied'. In this instance, the egg feels like it needs to be handled with extra care because it's wearing a diaper, automatically evoking a more human connection.

This also jogs some rather distant memories of highschool sex ed...
