I created a set of four 5×7″ paintings in late April or early May, but couldn’t post them then, as I donated two of them to the Arthouse for the 5×7 Show, and they needed to remain anonymous for the run of the show.  I think it’s safe to post them here now.  The two I didn’t donate are available for sale; I’ll add them to my gallery and shop pages soon.

Anyway, here they are:

The title of this painting is from one of my favorite stories about my husband.  At his first Easter egg hunt, being quite little and new to this tradition, he found his first egg and declared, “I got my Easter egg!”  He didn’t realize he was supposed to keep looking to acquire yet more eggs.  This story is illustrative of the kind of person he is: never greedy, and always satisfied with just enough.  🙂
