Modern Art for our Walls

“The strangeness will wear off and I think we will discover the deeper meanings in modern art.” – Jackson Pollock

The canvas is gonna get it

There is a concept in modern art, that art is more in the process than the product. Jackson Pollock was a prime example, as well as a prime demonstrator of such a concept. Though the art that follows is no Pollock – I would say the process to which they were created was with an art of play.

I’ll stop there. No need to go into any deep philosophical discussion revolving around friendship and art, nor eggs. This is a house blog, after all, and its no place for such things… Though it is a place for the art that was created from 72 eggs, 9 canvases, 6 friends, and a plentiful amount of Tempera paint.

Tapping the tops off the eggs, draining them and sticking the shells in a sink full of dishsoap. Must rinse before filling with paint.

Well of course there needed to be a beverage for the festivities.

He didn’t even get that much paint on him. Such a good easel.
tilt it
Abby managed to make my favorite. Rotate that one time to the right and it’s phenomenal.

The masterpieces drying.

 

quiche
72 Eggs made 10 Quiche. Everyone took home a canvas and a quiche.

So the moral of this story is. . . if you have friends who respond with, “sure! That sounds like fun!” When you offer an idea up like “hey guys, let’s fill a bunch of eggs with paint and chuck ’em at canvases!” Keep those friends. They’re good ones.
