Shadows cast on a barbecue hood

Acrylic polymer emulsion on gessoed hardboard, 15 x 11"
Painted Feb. 11-25, 2007, #117

Painting glass and reflective surfaces is something that I enjoy doing, as these filter and reflects / refracts light. Light and contrast are elements that inform me if a subject matter is major enough to paint. This is the second painting done with our charcoal BBQ with flowers in a mason jar. The first was shown and sold at the Capitol Theater Art Gallery in Moncton, NB, in a group show organized by the Fog Forest Gallery earlier this year. I like the fact that light and shadows exist in such a close proximity.
