Pansies Instead of an Egg

Blue Pansies
6" x 8"
No, it's not a new diet, although you can eat pansies.  After my car handle broke off when I opened the door this morning, plastic crumbling like an egg shell, I thought I would paint a cracked egg as a still life to memorialize the moment.  We were out of eggs and didn't feel like a trip to the store, so I chose pansies instead.  And they did cheer me up a bit.

What a delightful painting! Pansies are one of my favorite flowers - they remind me of colorful, smiling faces. I love the eggplant purple you used in the background - it harmonizes beautifully with the flowers.
