I've been wanting to try the subject of a raw egg for sometime. Here's my attempt. Like the watermelon, it was a challenge, but a blast to paint. I will definitely be returning to this theme in the future.

I thought no one else could do a broken egg like Duane Keiser; I stand corrected. Absolutely brilliant!

Thanks all. I was a little apprehensive at first about "stealing" someone elses subject matter. Everyone knows who I'm referring to. It wasn't meant as a competitive thing. I just wanted to give it a try. It looked like it would be fun. And, it was. So, I hope there are no hard feelings.

Eggs, egg... you know what I mean :) I've been awake for a while, what can I say.
