Friday Egg


Hot or Not?


Goose Egg Pysanky Elephant Flower Swirl in Pink, Orange and Blue


I made this egg a while back, but hesitated to post it as a Friday Egg because I can't quite figure out if I like it or not.  I love the swirling design and the elephant, but I made a mistake in giving it a white background.  I think the main thing I dislike about it is the pink and yellow are too much of the same intensity, so you can't see the yellow dots on the circling pink lines and both are far too light against the white.  And in comparison, the blue looks jarring against such delicate colors.  

I thought if I put it away for a while and looked at it again, I would be able to decide if I like it or not but I am still on the fence.  What do you think?  Hot or not? 

Just for kicks I added a poll at the bottom of the page (scroll down past the comments area and the ad) to make it easy for you to tell me what you think - just click on the button that most agrees with your view.  As always, comments are welcome.

I love the color pallet. And the swirling pattern looks like a woven tapestry! Well done.

Thanks Michele! I was thinking of a carpet or scarf when I was drawing it out.

I like it. I especially love the texture like shading you get with your colors. Very nice!
