Bottle Shadows - SOLD

Click Here to Bid

People ask me sometimes if I ever use fake flowers. You might have noticed this particular flower in quite a few of my paintings. It is the only fake one I use. It looks pretty fake in person, but somehow it always comes out looking real in paint. Otherwise I use real flowers.

I was just thinking today that I have never tried lighting from behind. It's so effective in this one. I like this one a lot. Your husband walked me through the solution to a problem I had loading my photo on DPW Challenge today. What a nice guy. I could tell even though he was just a person in cyberspace.

Wow! Your bottles are fantastic in this one, expecially the large one. Love the reflections in the glass and the colour and light in the shadows. And that little fake flower looks so real! :-)

I love the colorful shadows! Spectacular!

I don't know why people think about your flowers those things. I remember you sometimes painted some " gallardia aristata". They are perfectly recognizable. Your bottles have colors, shadows and brightness perfect. ¡Qué poderío!

As people have all ready said I love the bright blues and greens of the bottles and their shadows they really sparkle.
