White House Easter Egg

In 2004, Pawinee was asked to paint the Annual Easter Egg for the District of Columbia.  On a REAL egg.   In order to prep the egg for painting, the insides of the egg was drained, and it gesso was applied.  The medium used to paint the image on the egg was oil paint.  After the paint on the egg was completely dry,  a varnish was sprayed on top to protect the painted image.
