I love painting this gold vase. I just love how it glows. I don't know why some of the other vases don't glow as much, but am trying to figure it out. These berries I think came from a Bradford Pear Tree. I took the clippers with me while walking around the block and got them from a neighbors yard. :) It was between to houses in the front next to the electrical box and it was overgrown so I don't think anyone would care. The sugar pears are so much fun to paint. I love the colors.
