Welcome to my Art Blog! I paint or draw most weekdays and sometimes finish a painting a day. I fondly call them my "Postcards from Paradise" because it's such a beautiful place the Lord made here for us.

"Remnant" Small Still Life Daily Painting of Broken Glass

Original Oil 5"x4"

This glass broke on my bathroom counter when it slipped out of my hand one evening. I carefully picked up the pieces and set them aside, thinking how interesting they might be for a still life study.

Glass is always a challenge to paint and the broken piece was something I had not tried before. It does look a little scary, but don't worry, there's no deep meaning to this little painting or dark statement behind my purpose for this piece. It is simply a study of interesting edges.
