I am back in the studio after a long, lovely holiday vacation. It is rare that I stay away from the easel this long, so I was glad to have some commission work to pour myself into. This is the first of a set of three paintings of the sparkle design Christmas bulbs so popular in the 1960's. Round, reflective subjects are the most difficult objects to paint realistically, but I am very pleased with the result.
