'Rorschach'. But what did you feel?

Interesting comment on Wyeth's cool colours.

It does look mysterious, doesn't it? I want to know how people knew he used eggs on this? Is this common knowledge or did people Google it?

Lena said...

Couldn't find a better Haiku from this prompt! Class!

Perfect ... love how you incorporated his use of egg as a medium in so many of his paintings.
