Orange Parasol 6x6

If you happen to find yourself in Naples, Florida, check out a new gallery called The Art Boutique at Tin City. It's located in the front section of the buildings closest to Rte 41 and it's next to The Wine Store. After sampling some Florida wines you can browse the Boutique where you'll find some whimsical stoneware sculpture , some beautiful and well priced fused glass and a bunch of paintings, cards and prints by yours truly. Everything in this gallery is priced right. Stop by and try some wine and meet Mary, Julie or Charles who are working the gallery. As for today's painting. I bought this wonderful glass block vase at Goodwill store but haven't used it much. It's full of angles and reflections and could drive a painter nuts. It did me.

Well, it may have driven you crazy but it is beautiful - all full of highlights and reflected light. I wish I were in Naples and could see your gallery - I doubt people have to be pumped with wine to buy these gems:)! I'm so happy for and proud of you!

Mary, I love the parasol and I think the glass block is the right one for your painting. Congrats on getting your "stuff" in the gallery, next to the wine shop huh? I wonder how you found that one. Love you Auntie

I love this little vase and the way you captured it (of course with that cool little party parasol!) And I like the use of complementary colors here!
