Happy Holidays

"Unwrapping Christmas"
This is my annual Christmas painting. The original is 8" X 10" oil on panel. I usually paint something with more color but as soon as I found this ornament, I knew I had to paint it. The stark silver and white against the lights of our Christmas tree really appealed to me. I hope your holiday was a merry one and wish you a very Happy New Year!

I enjoyed painting the pears I did a couple weeks ago and thought I'd do a couple more. I've often thought that "everyone paints pears" but now I see their appeal! The shape is very challenging and this color is really interesting too! I think I'll be revisiting this subject again. I really like to paint reflections too. It's always a challenge to make sure one looks like the reflection and the other looks like the real thing!
