December Xmas Ornaments 5

Now this is just a couple of a set of purple ornaments. I just love purple and like a lot of bower birds I like shiny things, so these ornaments fit the bill. I sort of messed up the sparkles I put on these ornaments. I am not the most patient thing and they don't call me the bull in the china shop for nothing. It was fun trying to capture the color of these bulbs. Although they started out the same color they for some reason turned a different color this year. Maybe it was the heat in the attic that caused the paint to discolor. I still like them, the actual ornaments that is.

You are getting me in the mood to paint some ornaments now.

Wow, so pretty! And I love Bower birds. I did one on Illustration Friday last year. I forget what the word was.

Btw, the white raven legend on my blog is one I made up! First I think of an image and then I write a story to go with it. I usually try to make it uplifting, hopeful or magical. I didn't even know white ravens really existed until I "Googled" them :)
