Christmas Reflections-Still life

Close ups

Merry Christmas
To all my blogger friends who mean so much to me throughout the year!

Oil on 5x7 canvas panel.

This is my contribution to this week's DPW's The Reflections On Water Challenge posted by Layne Cook. Her instructions were to paint something showing the many facets of reflections.
If you can't get excited about painting water, paint something else that's reflective (but not a mirror- that's too direct).

After much mulling around of ideas, I came up with Christmas bulbs as the reflector...very timely!
Then I wondered "what to reflect?". Shortly thereafter, a good friend dropped off a few christmasy goodies her sister had baked. Shazaaam!! There was a Christmas tree cookie! Problem solved!
