The Old egg beater

 

Note from the artist:

I suspect my mother had this egg beater from the day she was married. I certainly remember it as a child. It was in contant use throughout my mother's life and since she was an enthusiatic and excellent cook and had many visitors, it was used a great deal.

After my mother died the egg beater miigrated to my house where it sat in a drawer until I discovered that it is much easier to beat egg whites to a foam using this old fashioned instrument than using the more modern whisk. That made me wonder why whisks are so much more popular nowadays?

I entered this painting in a local show recently and noticed that it was a real conversation starter. Women who saw it invariably talked about their own egg beaters or those of their mothers. A little bit of nostalgia.
