Glass Christmas tree ornaments resting at the base of a Christmas tree on a bed of cotton fluff, lit by tree lights from above. I added the sparkling “stars” with a sparkle brush I created in Photoshop.

Dedicated to the memory of my artist friend, Wilson, who loved Christmas with a pure-hearted joy. The tree and glass ornaments in this photo were his.
