Another still life, another painting out of my comfort zone! :)
I’m still working on loosing up my style, and it definitely was not easy with this one. I’m pretty happy that I can pretty much paint what I see. However, one day I’ll be able to change the colors and the details of what I see to express what my mind sees.  It’s a blessing to have a goal that requires practice and imagination. :) 

I had a hard time taking a good picture: the dark background and the blues look totally different in photo, so I had to shoot several times and photoshop it a little to get closer to the real colors.

Thanks to Lela  Stankovic for the challenge! I would not have picked this subject on my own, and because of that I enjoyed it and had fun.
