Oil on Board
There are a few things I shy away from painting because they are just so intimidating. Glass is one of those things. During this painting challenge (30 Paintings in 30 Days) one of my goals is to push myself into losing my fear of painting glass, reflective surfaces, figures, etc. It's just paint! What am I scared of??
Anyway, I ventured out to our huge local flea market and antique store this week in search of colored glass. I am inspired by Carol Marine who just knows exactly where to place those highlights and by my friend, Carrie Waller, a masterful watercolor artist who does glass like nobody's business!
The title? Inspired by a Brady Bunch episode. Jan makes up a story about having a boyfriend named "George". When pressed for a last name, she looks around the room and sees (you guessed it)...a glass. George. George Glass. Yeah, that's his name, George Glass! ;)
