Ring in the New Year

My mother-in-law attached this lovely silver bell and ribbon to a Christmas package of mine. I couldn't resist painting it. I tried it twice. The one above is my second try.
Here's the first time (and the first painting I've done with my image on the new iPad rather than painting from my printed image) The one below is not for sale (unless someone can't live without it!). It's the first painting I've done in awhile and more of a practice than anything. The one above IS for sale. :o)
Oil on panel, 6" x 6"

Ringing in the New Year
So what if no word
rhymes with orange; you
make poetry so
well visually
after the blues leave.

Both of these are absolutely gorgeous! You have an amazing sense of design, equaled only by your use of color and brushwork!
