Good morning! An extra special Friday Egg for you this week to mark the occasion: the East Austin Studio Tour starts tomorrow, November 12! It is both Saturday and Sunday this weekend and next weekend from 11 to 6 each day. Hundreds of East Austin artists are opening their studios to the public so you can see where the artwork is made, talk to the artists about the creative process, have a glass of wine or nibbles and buy buy buy beautiful artwork! For more information on the tour, go to the East Austin Studio Tour site. I am honored to be on the tour again this year and was excited to be picked by Wayne Alan Brenner of The Austin Chronicle as one of the top 25 stops on the tour! Check out the listing; I'm in pretty good company! I hope if you are in town that you can come this weekend or next to peruse some of my new work.
Onward! Today's Friday egg is an ostrich egg done in the traditional eight-pointed star design. This truly is one of my favorites: always a show-stopper! Halfway through I was enchanted by a lovely light blue that I got from washing down a darker blue and it ended up changing my entire color scheme from scarlet, orange and dark red to lovely blues. The last photo shows the ostrich egg next to a quarter so you can get an idea of how big it is. I hope you enjoy it!
