Musings about Basket of Eggs
This painting was the first of a long series of images that featured women carrying baskets or nests filled with eggs. Eggs represent new life. Each egg requires a certain amount of time necessary to develop to maturity. In this life, there are people—both men and women—who have a huge capacity and heart which encourages the young life to develop at its own pace, becoming whatever it is destined to be. Perhaps this woman is one such person.
