DPW Challenge

"Silver Box w/ Purple Tissue Paper"

6 X 6

Oil on Hardboard
Here is my entry for this weeks Daily Paintworks Challenge.  It was a challenge to wrap a gift and paint it.  Well, I didn't have any decent wrapping paper, but I did have some really cute little shiny silver boxes.  So I decided to make this an exercise in painting shiny things.  I'm pretty happy with it.  Don't forget, Daily Paintworks is opening up their web-site to the general public - auctions included! next Tuesday.

Here is what the set-up looked like
Here is how it would look framed.

Don't frames give just about every painting that finishing touch?
