The Witch Sailed Away in the Eggshell

Finishing up my painting of the witch sailing away in the eggshell.
Original painting approximately 8" x 10" acrylic on acid-free paper. Inspired by the folk belief in the British Isles that eggshells must be thoroughly broken after an egg was eaten or a witch might commandeer the eggshell for a sailing vessel. She would inscribe the name of the egg-eater on the inside, and that victim would become bewitched. The Witch in the Eggshell, original work available at My Good Babushka.
