Twins

I picked up these little glass cube candle holders at the Flea Market while Don was otherwise occupied ;) He has a 6th sense about my shopping for 'props' and tries to head off some of my purchases with, "do you really need that?". The answer? "Of course, I do."

Wow, I dont know how you have managed to do a painting of glass and the glass really looks like glass (if you understand what I mean). In other words, I like it very much, it looks so realistic X

Fantastic painting.

Funny, I was at a thrift store looking for subject matter just today. :)

Love the sunny hot feel of this painting and it is definitely glass.
See you soon.

Paz said...

LOL! Good pick for your art work. I like the yellow.

The qualities of glass must be so hard to capture, but you have it down really well. I think you should do wine glasses next. First go shopping to get glasses; choose the best possible lighting; get all the gear in place; recheck the lighting, fill wine glasses with primo quality stuff; recheck the lighting; quaff the contents and make a picture that looks like this one but with stems.
