Painting eggs today ! I've needed a little diversion from large projects. My mother was good at getting us involved in creative ventures without worry of the mess we might make. Blowing eggs and painting them .... with brushes and acrylics. Toothpick structures were another good winter activity. One of my older brothers , John, who was either the most extreme or just the most competitive , attempted to make a life size form of a man from the ground up. Muscle structure and all. The hips were constructed before it became a victim of circumstance . 5 adolescents in one home, not conducive to fragile works of art. There are no eggs that survived that time either.
