Chick and egg design

Hello all,

I thought I would share my love of cloisonné eggs with you by trying to design one in bright spring colors. After deciding the egg looked best with a purple base I added the yellow chick. To answer the age-old question “What came first the chicken or the egg?” Purple eggs come first.

Artwork is a digital photo collage of hand painted paper. Materials used: Liquitex, Heavy Body acrylic on Canson XL watercolor paper. Illustration created in Adobe Illustrator.

Best wishes,


A special thanks to the people who have ordered this design on products!
