"Little Yellow Crocuses"

- by So Jeo LeBlond

This week's theme: Yellow

Yellow is a complicated colour. It can be difficult to wear and hard to live in. It can indicate illness and infection or alert us to hazards. But it can also represent warmth and cheer. A splash of yellow can brighten a room and lift a mood. In the spring, yellow is at its best. We find it in blooms both flashy and quiet, butterflies and even the clothes we wear. Because there is so much yellow appearing all around, we decided to feature some of the happier shades of yellow in this week's EBSQ Art of the Day.

Art: Little Yellow Crocuses by Artist So Jeo LeBlond
This beautiful pysanka was made in the traditional batik wax and dye process on a real blown quail egg, which is then sealed with an industrial grade UV resistant, protective, crystal clear finish. It measures approximately 1 1/4 inches tall.

This design features bright sunny yellow crocuses stretching themselves to greet the warm spring time sun. "Little Yellow Crocus" is one the popular Floral Series of designs recreated on a tiny quail egg. Gold stand is included.

The design is meticulously drawn out in pencil before it goes through a process of waxing and dyeing. Etching technique is used to create the raised borders and create a three dimensional effect. Comes in a gift box and as a little piece of artwork in it's ownright, your egg is signed by me, the artist, and comes with a digital COA (EBSQ Certificate of Ownership) to register your piece once you receive it.
