My siblings would always finish dying Easter eggs at least two hours before me. While they were fighting for control of the Atari in the next room, I was agonizing over my six annual masterpieces. How could I possibly top my fur-covered egg of ’84? Or the sublimely understated, lemon-scented egg of ’82? I was convinced that my works belonged in a museum somewhere, alongside Van Gogh or Picasso.
