Handpainted Hen Egg - Carousel by Jade-Pandora Handpainted Hen Egg - Carousel by Jade-Pandora

I used to paint eggs using water-based acrylic paints, and a clear enamel glaze. I also did portraits on eggs which are time-honored heirlooms for families in Europe, passed down from generation to generation. The egg shown here is what I call my "carousel" design, showing 3 of the 4 horses.

:bulletblue: The egg measures exactly two & a half inches high.

:bulletorange: Photos taken by me. :camera:

:bulletpurple: July 22, 2012:  I found out mere moments ago - my "Handpainted Hen Egg - Carousel" piece has received a Daily Deviation for July 22th!  My first ever for my artwork! I'm numb, I'm stunned, my hands are trembling as I try to type this update.  My profound thanks to the wonderful vespera for suggesting it, and to UnicornReality for featuring it!  This is another amazing addition to the welcome I have received in so many ways since I returned to become active once again on dA. :love:

You've managed to add so many intricate details to this little egg! The horse is so cute and I love how it brings back childhood memories. There was a carousel in a Georgia mall I used to love to ride on. It's still there. When I went back to the States this year, I went to that mall and it was exactly as I'd remembered it.

You truly are a jack of all trades, Jade. Whether it's visual or written art, you always create something beautiful. :heart:

Why thank you so very much! :heart:

Yes, I too remember a carousel from my childhood that I loved and it's in Griffith Park. You can hear some of the music that plays while you take a spin on one of the horses (on youtube): [link]

As for all the things I've done, I started out as a traditional artist long before I became a regular poet writer. I'm so glad you like the egg art. :heart:

Yes, quite small, yet I've never been drawn to paint designs on larger eyes like goose. I liked challenging myself to do minute complicated designs. I appreciate your thoughts, and I thank you for enjoying my egg art. :)
