I originally was going to paint a “serious” Pink Moment egg — it was going to cover the outside. But…I got the idea to carve into the thing.
Starting to really carve…
I was getting very frustrated, had trouble digging in there — had an electric knife (thank you Joanne Pavlak!) and that worked for part of it. But, Ojai Rockstacker Martha Moran came to the rescue and brought me real sculpting tools — what had taken me two weeks I ended up finishing up the carving in a day. And…not a day too soon! Rain was predicted (in Southern California?!) and frankly, we can’t complain about rain (waaahh!).
Have a lot painted…you can tell the clouds are heavy with incoming rain.
So, carving done, Went to town, got the outside painted and put this stuff on the Styrofoam so I could paint on it with looking holey. I started painting the Pink Moment – with my trusty palette knifes.
Didn’t like the brown color inside the egg, so changed it to blue. A few more touches needed before it was done.
Delivery day to the Ojai Valley Inn and I was in a walking cast. Well, Martha Moran, Fred, Norman and Tanya Kovaleski came to my rescue and delivered my egg to the inn.

Well, here it is…my egg. It’s no 2 and has been moved to the art cottage area if you’d like to see it and other eggs in person.
