Or, we could ask the philosophical question: Which came first, the carton or the egg?
I decided to paint this - it is actually part of a series - painting of an egg carton, partly to see if I could still paint realistically, and also for the exercise of painting styrofoam.
Styrofoam has some interesting properties, if you examine it close up, plus the way it reflects light provides certain challenges.
(Other paintings in the Genesis series involve the clear type of egg carton and the pressed paper version.)
From time to time, I'll post additional examples of my egg carton work!
