I added the highlights to finish this bell. Watch for more ribbon paintings. Happy New Year everyone.

Here's another version of this bell and ribbon. I'll go back and add some highlights later. Time for a break. This is a good subject as the ribbon is just a series of angles, darks and highlights. Strangely, I am not afraid of reflective subjects and even find them easier to paint than, say, trees.

You know the expression K.I.S.S. (keep it simple, stupid) I find it hard to do. It may not be in my nature? Anyway, this not so simple set up is what I've been working with for the past week::::repeating to myself:::::keepitsimplekeepitsimple:: Merry Christmas everyone and Happy New Year too.

Just to let everyone know. It turns out that the marysheehanwinn.com site which disappeared this past summer is cached and comes up when the Google search query is Mary Sheehan Winn fine art. And.. usually I don't post non painting related material on this site but I've been in New Hampshire for the weekend visiting with my two little nephews, thus, no painting but a whole bunch of fun. Colin is all silly smiles and Ryan has his man of mystery air in this photo.

I began this landscape several weeks ago when the leaves were still quite colorful and this birch tree was sporting its yellow green Fall foliage. The tree on the left is calling out for more work. Can anyone weigh in with a critique?
