So what goes in here? Candy? A present? Ornaments? Dreams? Trinkets? Keepsakes? I may paint this again, maybe next time with something in it. For now, it's for you to wonder.

Christmas Ornaments first became popular around 1880 and instantly became hit. At that time, the only ornaments that were in the market were German hand-cast lead and hand-blown glass decorations. Until 1925, Germany had almost a monopoly over the Christmas ornament market. Japan gave the first significant shove to Germany's supremacy by producing ornaments in large quantities in newer designs that were more colorful and had an oriental touch and exported them to the United States. Later, Czechoslovakia also entered the competition with several fancy Christmas ornaments. By 1935, more then 250 million Christmas tree ornaments were being imported to America. The first American company started producing Christmas ornaments significantly only in 1939, due to the outbreak of World War II. Christmas ball and bauble ornaments have been quite popular since then. Keepsake Christmas Ornaments first appeared in 1973 as decorated glass balls and yarn figures. Later, they expanded to include Christmas ornament handicrafts such as bone china, porcelain, paper mache, wood and acrylic ornaments. Glass angels, stiff spun glass butterfly wings, flower baskets and vases decorated with tinsel, air balloons with tinsel and egg zeppelins have been the hot favorites during the holiday season.Some people like to display their Christmas ornaments even after the Holiday Season is over, just to remind them that there is happiness and cheer around the corner. Special ornaments can be enjoyed year after year and some of the most popular ones are Christmas Stars, Santa Claus and his elves ornaments, Snowflake and feather ornaments and Christmas angel ornaments. The variety and styles of Christmas ornaments has increased to a much wider collection since then as they have evolved into much more sophisticated and expensive decoration items.

This was fun. I named it "Listening" because this was Whoopi's first few months on the view. She seemed to be taking it all in, sometimes in amazement I would guess, just trying to get a word in. I wondered what she was thinking.
I think she has brought a good balance to this show, she just has good common sense and her sense of humor is wonderful.

complex adult thought
wish the spoon could scrape out my insides
I could throw them on the floor
pick through them like hunting for seeds
so I could keep the ones that I want

Every year I admire these growing by the side of the road. They are often at the edge of the soybean fields, now a copper color. It creates quite a pretty complimentary color scheme.

12"X12" Oil on gallery wrapped stretched canvas. Backlit by the morning sun, painted from life, this painting took several weeks to complete. The flowers are painted first, as they don't last very long. The Roseville Pottery is from my own collection.

I ordered a new color from Blue Ridge Artist Materials. http://www.blueridgeartist.com/ They hand make all of their oils. This color is smalt, a beautiful blue sometimes difficult to obtain. Nice buttery consistency to the paint. Wonderful customer service. Thanks Eric!

Poetry Copyright Brianne Prince 2007
Deep along the forest edge
And high on a branch's cracking ledge
Lay the guardian of the falling leaves
Turning, spinning in mid air
They tangle in his matted hair
And form a halo of autumnal fire
Where dried out trees bend and tire
Forming his most confining cage
Where with the forest he's
Doomed to age
