A Midsummer Day's Dream

This painting was the first I did by using egg tempera. I researched its composition and methods of use in several books before trying this exciting and very old method of painting. It took me several attempts to isolate and strain pure egg yolk before I learned the knack of doing it successfully. I would estimate that I used two dozen eggs in the completion of this 24 X 36" painting, which depicts three children enjoying a cool pond beneath a small canyon waterfall in Arizona. They share a time of tranquility in a soothing setting.

This painting is framed in a wide wood frame decorated with a linen liner and aluminum border.
