Colorful Reflections

Hi Friends!

It's (again) been a little while since my last blog, sorry about that.  I'm back now!!

The last couple weeks I've been working on some new works.  My favorite was an exercise in painting glass bottles!  This was the first time I really, seriously, tried a painting of glass... but challenges push you forward and teach you a number of things!  I really like how the painting progressed and finally finished.


This was after the initial drawing and beginning painting.  I added the marbles into the painting for a little pizzazz!

 
 After getting the initial layout done, I put in a background.  A nice simple flowering tree branch, paned window, and a bit of a side curtain... still trying to keep it simple.  Above is the start of filling in the background.

And here is the finished product!  I was quite pleased with it.  I hope you enjoy it too!  I have a show coming up soon, so this will be included in that show.... very excited.   More on the show in my next blog, waiting for the date to be set!

Please visit my website to see more of my work. And don't forget to subscribe to this blog if you like what you see!!

Thanks for visiting! Happy Painting!
