A Good Egg.

6x6 oil on panel NFS

Ever wonder what people mean when they say, "He's a good egg?" I think I do. Here is the last painting of the eggs and spoons....for now ;) I actually painted it yesterday, but in honor of Jason and his family, I wanted to leave "Coming Home" as my main post yesterday. Jason is resting peacefully with his family, and from what I understand is enjoying visitors of family and friends, and joking and laughing....What a strong brave man. The idea of joking when you are at the end of your final earthly days leads one to contemplate just how much this man loves his family to set them at ease before he makes his journey home..... I'll be sending the painting to Michaele and the boys tomorrow if it is dry enough, there's another part of the photo that I used as a reference for "Coming Home" that I have yet to paint, but couldn't bear it today. You will see it soon, I promise. Here's an egg instead, and remember, whatever you are, be a good one.
