In the spirit of the approaching holiday season I decided colored glass balls were in order. It is amazing to me that Thanksgiving is in FIVE DAYS! What happened to this year?!?

Oh, I love how shiny and colorful the balls are - just beautiful. I hope you paint more of these :).

Happy Thanksgiving (early, because I'll be out of town and no internet access during the week) in your new place!

Ah, this is beautiful and fun. I think part of the year went down the drain! It did fly by. Hope you have a great Thanksgiving!

What a beautiful painting and an incredible color scheme! The Chrismas balls are deliciously reflective! Nice painting, and have a very Happy Thanksgiving "week."

Love this! The shiny ornaments against the white ceramic is fabulous. Love all the reflections bouncing around and the brushwork is stellar. Highlights are the best:)

Wow, these are so great, Carol. What shininess you have achieved. I really hope you do more of these!

Amazing! I am looking at the way you handled the reflected light on these glass balls, and I'm in awe.

Gorgeous! And I think you've had other things on your mind rather than the approaching holidays!!!!!!

Your reflections are spot on. Such a great example too on how to paint round objects with linear brushwork, which make them look so much more interesting. Very inspiring.

Just excellent! This should be your Christmas card this year.

Perfect! I'm already listening to Christmas music, so I particularly love your subject. Beautiful reflections and I am impressed with the color you picked up in the shadows too.
