I painted this at the same time as 'Field of Dreams'. For both pictures, I was inspired by how an egg is both very fragile and incredibly strong and by the beautiful simplicity of its shape. I also like how, looking at an egg, we cannot know what will emerge, and so it remains filled with endless potential. I reworked this picture some time after I first painted it because, even though it didn't feel quite right, it took me a while to feel ready to revisit it.
