Work in progress. I have been challenged and fascinated by the iridescent qualities of the abalone shell lately. And don't even get me started on the existential pondering one can experience when considering the design of the noble pine cone! 

This oil painting went through several changes throughout its creation and I think it is finally time to call it finished. #conifernerd #frustratedwife.

See how it turned out.
