"Sunshine" --- SOLD
This is a cosmos from my garden, but what I really liked was the glass vase from this angle, and the little splotch of light in the shadow. When I'm doing a vase like this, or anything elliptical, I measure. Because my brain likes to play tricks on me, so for instance I measured, with my brush and thumb, the distance from the bottom of the vase to the bottom rim of the opening. Then I compared that to the distance from the bottom of the rim to the top of it. It's actually a fairly equal distance, but my brain was saying "THAT CAN'T BE!" So I ignored my brain, as I do often, and put down what I saw and not what I thought I saw.
