Egg Scratching

At long last, my chickens and I are collaborating.  They lay the egg, a job I DO NOT envy, and I empty it, cook & eat the contents and then (after a proper wash) start painting on the shell.

Here are a few eggs I've just posted to the Sweet Enemy Art Facebook page (go give it a like!)

Not too long ago I had a studio visit from local artist Mary Hill, who came and interviewed me while I demonstrated this technique.  They were supposed to edit today, but I'm not sure when it will air on our local cable access channel.  Here's to hoping I don't come across as a complete dork.

This is what my work area looks like when I do these:

But it wasn't this messy when we filmed!  Had to use a completely different table.  All good.
