Pine cone in Sunlight

Pinecone in Sunlight 6" x 6" oil on masonite
I've been waiting for a reason to paint this pinecone! The composition was a happy accident, I was just going to have the pinecone against a bluish background, but the light started to filter in a way that framed the pinecone nicely, so I scraped away blue to put it in. I like that I got a bit of the window shape incorporated. Sunlight always makes me work faster because I can see how much has changed since I started; a moment is so fleeting, a day never the same as the one before it.
