Default egg tempera like your've never seen it

I am breaking some personal new ground in my egg tempera painting. I have gotten tired of tight little lines and woosie images. I need bold and bright in my life.

I love to play the "what if" game with egg tempera. What if you pour it instead of brush it on? You get moving, beautiful intense color

What if you don't use any white anywhere in the painting? A new one for me

What is you make it a mixed media piece? The squares are actually pieces of glass that I glued over the piece

The concept of the artwork is the stages of life. The spring green glass squares symbolize birth and youth and the quieter gold-green ones represent repose, with of course the center poppy being the epitome of life's energy in the middle years.

Let me know what you think of my new adventure
