Reflections in Red - Work in progress

Reflections in Red, Work in Progress, 24 x 24

You'd think that I would have had enough stripes and reflections with my last painting but Nope, here's another one.

After some false starts, this is the end of one day of painting. The colors are blocked in. Next, I'll work on the background

Bird in Box - Vintage toy

Bird in Box, 8 x 10, oil on board

I needed to take a break from my Striped painting. This is the result. This is a vintage red, tin, windup toy bird in a cigar box.

I'm searching for a better title. Any suggestions?
