I Cracked that Nut

Just a brief update about my newest paintings. Aren't they just the cutest little things?
I am enjoying the process of doing paintings that have a relationship with each other. Sort of force the issue when the same object appears in both. My attempt is to have them work together, but to also be their own individual composition.
Below are the finished product after a bit of work to touch up the details and bring it into focus.

The painting on the left is almost completely reliant on highlights and reflections for the composition. All else is pretty unified and evenly toned. The other has a more powerful and obvious abstraction. Despite the differences I think they balance each other nicely.
These paintings are revisiting a theme I did last year.
