A couple of years ago my mother gave me two wooden eggs and asked me to paint them.
It was remiss of me in that it has taken me so long to decide on what to do. Yesterday I painted them gold. Her condo is in the neoclassical style so I thought the designs of Etruscan pottery might fit.
I took my inspiration from a google search of Etruscan designs.
Here are the front and back of one egg.
They are so small, only three inches tall. I hope she likes this one. The next can be of two scantly clad ancient warriors fighting. You don't know my mother. :)
