Ornament trio

A few ornaments from my parents selection. At first the red ribbon hangers were facing the back and the composition was feeling pretty static. I spun them around and loved what was going on with the ribbon! They totally saved the composition and made the painting way more interesting. It's a good reminder not to settle on something when you're not feeling it.
Just a reminder - the draw is Sunday night! If you're on Facebook, all you have to do is "Like" Eat Drink Paint. If you're not on FB, you can leave a comment under Tuesday's post. Good luck : )
