Pencil drawing on paper

An alternate title for this could be "Three Birds with One Stone". (Please contact me if you would like to own this original drawing.)
Our subject for this month's Challenge is brought to you from group member Vicki.
You might recall that one of our Challenge goals is to paint or draw something we have not done before. Although I've painted an egg or two in the past, I figured there were plenty of aspects about the subject that I could do.
And then I remembered a concept I had thought about awhile ago but never got around to trying. I had picked up an egg-shaped rock somewhere and considered that it would be fun to pose it with eggs.
So this month's Challenge was the perfect excuse to do that, and I figured my pencil drawing skills could use the practice too.The rock has been buried under some stuff on my desk for maybe a couple of years, just waiting.
I hope you enjoy these fun interpretations of our subject.
Vicki has been tackling various mixed drinks for the past few Challenges, as subjects. Her clever juxtaposition of objects makes for a whimsical visual treat.

Suzanne's painting is typical of her work: wonderful! I always enjoy her take on whatever subject she chooses to paint. And her technique forever fascinates me. I loved her comment when she sent the painting image to Vicki and me, "Here are my eggs, not cooked but done."

Welcome to my Art Blog! I paint or draw most weekdays and sometimes finish a painting a day. I fondly call them my "Postcards from Paradise" because it's such a beautiful place the Lord made here for us.
