Parrots

Miniature painting
on hen green eggs

The collection “Parrots” depicts eight different birds;
all -but one- are parrots!
The technique used was embossed underpainting  and watercolour pigments in an effort to immitate the shapes and colours of semiprecious stones of the pietra-dura artifacts that have adorned the Italian Renaissance halls. A simple ring of glass beads bonds the egg to a matching green urchin shell, keepsakes of my childhood’s seashore adventures.

Nature upholds a very important place in my eggart painting.
The fragile canvas of the egg acts as a strong incentive for me to keep on being inspired by nature and guides me to listen in this loud world…
