Spring Blossoms

Flowers, Glasswork and Pottery

One thing I love about Madrid is that explosion of color and light, suddenly, after a freezing cold winter.

The technique is resin-oil; the resin being ventian terpentine with other essential oils that I mix with natural historic pigments using a palette knife.

Yellow, pink and white blossoms in tall thin vase. Small painting

Wild flowers and glass is what I like most in still life especially reflected in the mirror.

Another resin-oil with that candied look to it.  Poppies in transparent emerald-green glass is amazing to paint.  I like the way the glass bends the light destoring the stems in the water.

   There is a white rose bush on the terrace.  Sometimes I wait for them to bloom so I can paint them in one of my favorite glass vases.

I  tried a new color to see how it would affect the look of the glass and the pink rose.  The color and light effect is a bit different than usual.
