And, now, the background story-- The Easter Egg Decorating Contest…
My first time recognition as an artist happened at the egg decorating contest in my town. The week before Easter, our local park hosted the annual contest for neighborhood children. What kid would pass up the chance to get gluey and glittery?
In the park’s gymnasium, large work stations were set up with jars of paint, dyes, glitter, sequins and beads. Each child brought their own egg to decorate. The one my mother gave me was a small, grade A sized egg, not much room to apply the ornamentation I imagined it would need. My friends set to work painting, gluing and then rolling their big AAA eggs in everything sparkly.
Somewhat dispirited, I cut a paper cup bottom to elevate my little egg. Then I formed two long rabbit ears from stiff white first aid tape. I mixed paint to delicately rouge her cheeks and inside her ears. Then I illustrated her face, eyes and whiskers in brown and silver with a tiny brush. After tying a lace bow around her paper collar, bunny girl was finished. She looked bright and happy, but my egg still didn’t look nearly as special as the others. Mine had no glitter, no sparkle and no sequins.
On the judging table, lined with colorful entries, I placed my bunny egg toward the back. When the judging was finished, every entrant filed by the table to view the eggs and awards. I guess you know where this story is going…Second and third place honors were taken by several glitter-drenched masterpieces. And, astonishingly, right beside them was my bunny girl egg, sitting atop a small blue first place ribbon.
