Sun rising behind heirloom glass plate

Acrylic polymer emulsion on gessoed hardboard, 12 x 10''
Created - Sept 27 - Nov. 7, 2008, # 149

This is a commission piece. The red glass plate is an heirloom treasure that once belonged to one of their mother's. The object on the right is a blue glass vase that will be featured in a upcoming larger piece. It is pretty much a study of glass on glass, of transparencies and reflections.

Please note- The picture I took of the painting is crisp and detailed. In the process of uploading the image for this Blog, the plate becomes blurry and out of focus while the remaining image appears normal.....a Blog mystery.

-Private collection


  1. This large red plate stands like a huge candy offered to the sun. I'm always attracted by the mix of red and blue and this painting shows a good and dynamic balance with these colors.I just added your link on my blog,

  2. I really like the idea of doing a study of glass on glass. This is really lovely; it reminds me of Janet Fish's work.

  3. Amazing ! De plus en plus fort !

  4. This just takes my breath away. You are a master of showing transparency and reflection.
