"For Me?" --- SOLD



It took me 3 tries to get this right. The first was on a teal background. The colors were amazing, but I just couldn't capture it. I'll try that again later. I was inspired to paint little packages when I was at the book store the other day and saw a shelf of little gold boxes of chocolates with green, polka-dot ribbon! For $20. I thought "yikes! I can make that myself, AND get some good chocolate, for much less." I thought I'd try some plain ribbon first. It was a good change of pace and a great challenge.

Beautiful gleaming highlights against the darks. Great new direction of subject matter!

Love the way you captured the light...and what a lovely idea!

I like how just the suggestion of a few strokes and colors, tells you that the paper is metallic.

This is an exceptional piece, Carol. I love how well you captured the gold metallic. Wow!

I forgot to mention the other day how awesome I think this one is. You just nailed that reflective paper. It really is a marvel.
