Merry Christmas Carol. I had the itch to paint Christmas ornaments as well. Quite a festive way to celebrate. Love these and hope you and your family have a joyous celebration of the holidays. Thank you for all the inspiration you me and many others during 2009.

Filbertina, I was going to ask you if you ever paint ornaments. I want a Jag the color of the front ornament pleeeeeze!

I was daydreaming of a Blurb calendar you could do of 12 holiday still-lifes; not that you're busy or anything.

Yes, Carol, the eating of the cookies is the REWARD for the craziness of getting ready for the holiday!!! ;0

I love this. I love the rich colors of the balls.

Have a Merry Christmas, Carol!

Santa ate my cookies. Will you please send me some more? And that Jag would be a nice touch to store them in! :-)

Merry Christmas. Enjoyed looking at your studio blog. My wife & I built my studio last year and I LOVE IT!

Too late, I've eaten so many gingerbread men that I feel like that little blue ornament, rolling around.
Love the painting,great composition, and you continually amaze me with your straight brush strokes on round objects.

I'd like to see your palette in the middle of a painting and then right after you've finished the painting. You know, like you give us a link to see your studio in progress. Or, maybe you could just explain, for instance, what colors you mixed for that deep blue ornament and the purple one. Also, do you use titanium white for highlights? I love how deep your shadows appear and the depth you get even in the casual application of paint over the underpainting.

Oh Carol I am eating them all day.
Have a wonderful Xmas and a happy new year.
I love the painting.

Merry Christmas Carol! Keep up the great work in '10!

I need to book me a workshop. :?)

DSM said...

For Leo, and others; I always go for the pictures on this blog BUT in the menu sidebar at right you've got a link that takes you to Carol's website and the FAQ (that's a 'Q', Filbert!) sections are full of info, including her simplified palette. Just so you guys know....

Cookie break! Happy New Year to all!

I hope you had a very Merry Christmas, you T.V. star, you! Your site has inspired me all year long. Thanks so much.

A belated... "Jolly Holly" Carol!

"I" regularly check out your site... and am never disappointed.. when I find "You" shufflin' the deck... but always your confident edgy brushwork magically ties in that "new" idea or direction!

Good painting... and Happy New Year!
