This is a small version of pine cones I did a year ago. White pine trees very common in Maine, produce long pine cones that usually have a lot of pitch on them that can harden to this white frosty color. The best remover of pitch from your hands is to rub it off with a little Crisco. The pine cone and tassel is the Maine State flower which sorry, but they just don't fit my image of a flower.
PS-The second photo is same painting but I felt compelled to throw some blue in. I wasn't able to delete the top photo without deleting all so you can view before (top) and after (bottom). Sometimes I just can't leave a painting alone.
