Last summer I tried to execute a larger study of a simple egg. For some reason I believed I was failing terribly, and I scraped it out and moved on to something else. A few weeks later I saw a photo that was shot with the beginning of the painting in the background, blocked in with patches of paint. There are times when it might be good to take a second look before I declare defeat. As always, the simple egg stands up well as a very small study.
