So here is what I ended up doing with the red canvas. Instead of doing a literal translation of either eggs or sunflowers I went with sunflowers that look vaguely like eggs. Sort of. Anyway I just started painting and stopped thinking too much about it and ended up with this. It's not quite as bright as it comes across on my screen but it gives you an idea. This picture is a little blurry but the color comes across a little more true. Also I think you can see the thickness of the paint a little more. I used a pretty thick application.
