My mixed media exploration emerged first with eggshell exploration as I used them to add texture to tree bark in my landscape paintings.
The more I worked with the shells, the more I began to appreciate the form and feel of the eggshells.
They are so strong yet fragile, they shelter the unborn, finally cracking open to release
the new form of life.
I feel a kinship with the process as I am emerging into unknown areas, awaiting new experiences through painting.
