Eggs in a Bowl

"Eggs in a bowl", oil on canvas

It was easy to put the composition together for this painting: eggs in a bowl, and something to break up the monotony of the big empty gray space in front (in this case playing cards).  But I didn't see that the bowl casts a distorted reflection of the area around it until I was nearly finished painting the bowl.  An unexpected challenge and an exercise in values.
