It has been a few weeks (I think ) since I have had something new to post here.  I have been in a bit of pit.  Most everything I have started, I have ended up scraping off and washing off.
A few days ago I snagged a few more baubles and bits from the tree and bin of boxes & bows.  I have been rearranging these things for a few days trying to settle on an exciting composition.  Seriously,  I have stated and scraped at least 4 studio paintings in the last week.

Finally, something clicks!  Try something new with the studio still life.
O.k. um, Bird’s eye view and something playful for a change could do wonders.  Finally,  I started to feel the composition might work with the paint again.  I roughed in the composition.  Establish the main color balance and then took a long 2 hour  break.  ( I had to volunteer for my child’s holiday party.)

Then I came back to re-established a few color spots to work more consistently.
I focused on the high key color scheme and played with the visual diagonals.
This one was definitely a challenge for jumping back into the studio again.  I am quite pleased with the results.
