December 1 - Christmas Ornament, 7 x 5 Oil
"Tired of Red and Green?" Today I unpacked the glass ornaments for our small tree, and even though I cannot hang them due to the cats, it was so poignant to see these vintage glass orbs and shapes come to light for this time of year. So instead of putting them away, I brought the box down to the studio. This particular one is from the 50s, used to be on my aunt's tree, and they didn't do red and green, but this one in gold and turquoise. Such fifties colors! It will be tough to paint the ones I inherited from my folks, but I think I will do it. Great exercise for the painter with this subject! Original oil, 7 x 5 inches.
SOLD to the collection of Jeffrey Weisman of East Hampton, New York.
