While waiting for the garden(!) department customer service guy to find me a bag of ice-melt, I spotted on the cement floor a nifty rubber tip—1/2" square with rounded corners, one end open, the other closed, and about 1" tall—that had come off the leg of something and was unlikely ever to find its way back.
I recognized it for its true purpose: to become a stamp in my studio with which to make patterns!
Second egg hatched today:
3.5x3.5", acrylic, ink, and collage on canvas paper
