Colored Glass & Cherries

Click Here to Bid

We are all done with the workshop today. And despite the unruly Canadians I had a lovely time. The weather was pretty perfect, the scenery was beautiful, and ok, I might have exaggerated their behavior a little. Maybe they were actually pretty nice and wonderful. Maybe I said all that other stuff just for effect. Maybe they look awfully cute sitting around eating lunch outside:

For the group photo we had to set the camera on a car and use the timer, which produced not only a cool reflection in the foreground, but also tilted us a bit. I will miss my cute, fun, tilted Canadian kids!

Very cool group shot! Thank you again for the SUPER workshop :)
With much love from a 'tilty' Canadian friend.

Love the painting! You're a master of reflection!! It makes you wonder how many glass items of different colours you can pile up and juxtapose and still get the reflection right! Thanks for sharing.

I love the crisp precision of the brush strokes in your paintings. This is an especially felicitous composition as well.

What a lovely spot for a lunch! There is no way you'd be sitting in the sun for lunch in central Texas!

Your work never ceases to amaze me - but the glass in this one just totally blows me away!
All the best -

Carol, just where in Canada were you? And yes, you have to keep your eye on them there Canadians. Oh their all very "excuse me" and "Oh sorry" when you walk into them but don't be fooled. Their a calculating, shifty, tilty bunch of Canucks!
