My first try at a decorate small box was not worth completing.  I worked with a lot of magenta and reds, which are very transparent and don't have the full body I like.  I layered colour upon colour but the results did not improve.  Sometimes you have
to admit it isn't going to work and move on. 
This painting utilizes colours that suit my temperment better, at least in this point in time.
I enjoyed the smooth, pink glass as compared to the fussier embroidery and connecting the two with
the plain ribbon seemed to work.  In the setup the background fabric seemed to unify everything but I am not certain it entirely works in the painting.  I may change this.
