I'm just having a great time with these little glass trinkets! Some larger glass objects lent some size and shape variation to this composition. I capitalized on the colored light coming through into shadows, and of course the backlight coming forward between objects. The highlights are a blast because there are so many! There's a lot to look at in this painting. I hope you like it.


  1. I'm impressed that you took on all this glass! I love all the reflected light and the composition is really nice. You did a great job, Karen!

  2. I love the glass and the distorted shapes and crazy captured it well.

  3. This painting is one of my entries in Associated Artists of the Inland Empire's Fall Juried Show Sept. 10th-12th, at Victoria Gardens in Rancho Cucamonga. If you live in So. Cal. be sure to go. You'll see about 350 pieces of great art!
