Empty nest, 6x6, 8/4/09 SOLD

A friend gave me these beautiful egg shells that are from Aracana chickens.   It was a real challenge to paint them because I was painting during a torrential down pour this morning.  I think 4" of rain came down in an hour.   There was more rain than that during the morning but it was very very dark in the studio which made it hard to see color.  At one time it looked like midnight.   There was flooding all over the city in places where it never floods.  I went into the kitchen for more coffee and the stove was flooded and water was coming out of the light/fan fixture.   I now have a temporary fix on the roof and I'm not turning on that fan/light for a week.
