Christmas Bauble on Grey Paper - Oil on 6"x8" Linen Panel

It's been a while since I last painted, so I thought a simple Christmas bauble would be a good way to get back into it.  I especially enjoyed painting the warm, bright colours and reflections.  I did this painting yesterday afternoon in our hotel room in Palmerston North (just north of New Zealand's capital city, Wellington).  Was hot and humid, so was painting in swimwear and a t-shirt...  We're travelling for a while and I'll be painting and posting whenever possible.  Looking forward to capturing some of the local scenery along the way.
