This is not a "black and white" painting exactly - these were the colors of the still life I set up, believe it or not. I was challenging myself to capture the colors in the whites and grays, but it ended up coming out more like a value study. I LOVE white and silver as a Christmas decorating motif - they look really good together on a tree or wreath.

My Thanksgiving Painting Giveaway details are coming tomorrow!

So beautiful! I love the way you've been able to capture the sheen of the white satin ornaments, and the shine of the silver.

Very tough subject to capture, and you did it superbly.
