This beautiful silver container has been sitting on my props shelf for some time. At one point it became a place to store these blown out organic eggs. I would notice from time to time how appealing this container might be in a future still life arrangement. Things evolved from there - adding a pair of European Goldfinchs then a nest, the twins, additional eggs including quail and candy ones.

Judge's Comment: "The composition of this work is beautifully balanced, and the painting demonstrates great technical mastery with a subtle colour palette. The eye is led up and around from one bird to another and then down again to the only cracked egg. The soft hues in the reflection are beautifully rendered, and there’s a tangible feel to each of the different textures in this still life."
