Default My First Egg Tempera Paintings

Thanks for the reply Jean. Yes I was going for the tender colors of spring and new growth, but with Old Man River flowing on none-the-less.

For your other comment "I guess you'll do something about that blue egg shape under the tree." - I feel like Groucho Marx or something -
That's not a blue egg shape - that's my wife!

But you're right - it's a blue egg shape! - The awe inspiring atmosphere, texture and size of an old growth rain forest balanced with the exuberance of someone you love in the midst of it all - is something I'm just not getting across! - I'll either work this piece to death or start over!
