I collaged eggshells onto the canvas and then painted and shaded the egg to look like a wild bird's egg. Inspired by the Japanese art technique of Kintsugi (repairing broken pottery with gold) I painted the egg just beginning to crack open from the inside. This painting was made specifically for the 2017 UGallery Ornamental Artwork Collection. It will ship with a small wooden easel for display. The piece is final sale and ineligible for discount.

Getting to Know Jennifer

Jennifer Ross grew up surrounded by the art of her mother and grandfather. Her attempt to follow in their footsteps presented detours, however, and she ended up working in art galleries selling other's work. But her desire to paint continued to grow throughout the years. In 2008, a gift certificate to a local art store turned into an epiphany when she decided to try painting. Jennifer found inspiration in a collection of antique prints of birds' nests and eggs by the English artist, F.O. Morris, and began to create an avian series. These paintings serve as symbolic family portraits of what we all hold dear - our home and loved ones. Today, she is often commissioned to paint various colored eggs representing patrons' family members.
