Canning Jars

sold

I thought it would be fun to put a couple pieces in auction this week, ending over the long holiday weekend.  


This painting is so new that it is still wet as I type this.  Glass is a lot of fun to paint, because you have to force colors where there are none.  After all, glass is transparent.  So, the only way to represent it is to record every light and color it reflects from its environment.

  1. Love the colors you chose for you glass here...so beautifully done. The reflections and shadows are wonderful. It is a quiet, thoughtful piece that makes me pause. Love it.
