Abstract Painting with Egg Crates 

When a good friend of mine dropped by my house over a year ago, She brought with her  50 empty paper egg crates. 

She told me she had just  uncluttered her house when She  thought  of me!. Wow that was huge for me.

Now, don't get me wrong, my house is not an incinerator nor a refuse dump. She had no idea she had just sent my imaginative mind racing.

 I thanked her and pondered, for almost a year on what exactly to do with this Greek Gift. It was there staring at me every time I was in my garage/studio, I knew it had huge potential but how?

                       EMPTY EGG CRATES

Finally I decided to use it as a base for an oil painting. I thought to myself it must have an appeal and value.I kept processing it in my mind, from a creative and marketing point of view, on how best to go about creating something out of these crates sitting in my garage.

Which you will find below when it was still work in progress,

I also thought it should make a very good art piece, that would be a conversation piece.I got my inspiration from the Art of the ancient Eygptians,from the paintings done on the walls of the pyramids.It turned out,that with a good inspiration and a subject matter my aim was achieved!. 

A lesson learnt, and one echoed by all who saw it on display at my last exhibition,in a time of  austerity, and high cost of living, unemployment and financial uncertainties look within, there just might be wealth lying around.

We all have things lying around the house that are of value and some are not, but they all are useful,we can give to charity, re-purpose  them or even recycle.
Here is the finished work ENJOY.
