Flowers and Glass
Everyone thinks I'm painting flowers and glass... but actually these little studies are simply an excuse to play with light and color. Glass has a fabulous range of luminosity and reflections, like water... it's one of my favorite things to paint. And flowers, while also translucent if the light's hitting them just right are a great subject to play with brushwork and color.
