I was inspired to paint hanging eggs after recently contacting half siblings for the first time in my life. One of my half sisters sent me a holiday card with a photograph of eggs laid by her chickens. I was touched by the delicacy and sameness of these eggs, just as I was touched by the fragility and commonality with my newly met half siblings. I decided to hang and paint these sibling eggs in various situations to see if they could weather new experiences and eventually begin to bond with one another.

"Artist who live and work with spiritual values cannot and should not remain indifferent to a conflict in which the highest values of humanity and civilization are at stake." - Pablo Picasso, December 1937
