Painting glass has become a bit of an obsession for me. The delicate strength and structure of glass, the reflections and colours, the distortion of shapes and curves is a great challenge to paint. The Gathering is a new painting completed recently (18" x 30", oil on canvas).
My goal is always to paint loosely and abstractly yet have all the elements pull together realistically when viewed as a whole. Below are a few close up shots that show the brushstrokes (click to enlarge).
More glass paintings will be coming up in the near future and will be added to the Community Spirits series.
