"Red and Greens" 8" x 8' oil on gessobord

Sometimes during the Holiday Season I will paint a candy cane. Like the mercury balls, why not take advantage of using these unusual objects as my subject for a few weeks out of the year. Though the candy cane is front and center, I did not want to make the painting scream Christmas. Hard not to, huh? Anyway I enjoyed the process, especially with it submerged in clear glass.

Love it...the candy cane is a great idea!!

You asked me one time what different light I was using. It is a mylar film that I clip to my light fixture and it simulates the light in Northern Europe. I bought it online. I don't use it much because the light is sooo cool...but it is interesting.
