I think the music in the mall stores has gotten to me .... I was painting these sunflowers and pomegranate last week and somehow couldn't get the image of a Christmas ornament out of my mind. Where's the thought of the turkey and stuffing? So once home, I toned down the shiny ornament and forced it back into a piece of fruit. It is easy to look forward & worry about what lies ahead. But for now, I will focus on the present ... and the in season pomegranates!
