Stained Glass Lamp 6x6

Ok. Simple is outta here. Maybe I just can't fathom it. I bought this sweet little stained glass lamp at Christmas Tree Shops, a chain that started in New England and is now a destination for everyone who visits the area. Lots of cheap stuff. For the most part I stay away from the place, because it's too easy to drop $50 on knicky knacky stuff that I don't need (like more props) but they advertised these and I ran over and bought 2. Also, my husband is out of town for a week and I've been using the stove for a taboret, which is how it should be used.

Wow, this is the coolest painting Mary. I love the mood...And you are absolutely correct...the stove should be used as a taboret...that's why we have restaurants.

Wonderful, so change gears like Mario Andretti coming out of the pits. Lovely quiet piece.

Great paintings Mary! I love your colour schemes!

The painting and lamp are beautiful, but what surprised me most is the size of it. We use the metric system here in Brazil, so 6X6 was just a vague idea. It is smaller than I thought.
Now you better clean the stove of all paint, the cooker will not like to find "HIS" stove stained!

Atta girl! A stove is a PERFECT taboret. We need to keep all those take-out businesses IN business! Otherwise we'd be chefs. Wildly wonderful chefs. And skip 'simple'. This is so much more interesting?

Hi Mary,

I love this little gem! I'm inspired now to drag my painting equipment into the house, have been looking at taborets lately, too...hmmmmm

Dawn said...

Seeing that was almost as good as buying new lamps. Or maybe it was as good---I seem to have lost that get-out-to-the-store urge.

Sandy said...

great mood Mary,yu kept it nice and simple,not easy to catch that glow but you did it!

you justified the buy!

Hey, you saw it, you painted it. It is a super painting! I think there may be something extra inspiring that adds to the art spirit when we do something out of the ordinary before we even start the painting. I used to have a studio apt in Manhattan and I used the kitchen counter just like you did. And that was when i was doing normal sized paintings!! Now if we were blogging back then I'd have a photo of it!

Wonderfully strong sense of light in this painting. The lamp really looks turned on! Really like your colors and how they all relate easily.

Rhonda Hurwitz said...

great sense of ambient light. and I totally agree oven:)

Sharon Bancroft said...

This came out really nicely and definitely reminded me of Edward Gordon's work... he does a lot of late-night scenes with great incandescent lighting, which you captured well.

Mary Sheehan Winn said...

To even be mentioned in the same breath as Edward Gordon is a thrill.
I am in awe of his work and his dedication. Thank You Sharon!
