"Too Many Things" 17" x 20" oil on gessoboard

I thought that I would paint something large for a change. I pick among the things that I have in my still life cupboard. I don't consider my style suitable really for a boat load of "things" crowding the table, but thought the change might be good. I'm also working with improving my compositions through placement, colors, values and patterns. Painting orbs I find a challenge. I'm particularly happy with the reflection on the surface of the big cobalt jar. Although the visuals there are all on the surface of the glass, to me it reads more three dimensional. My show in Rowayton at Brendan's 101 comes down tomorrow and don't know where I will store all these paintings. Guess to Etsy they go!

I swear , no one can paint glass as good as you can.

I agree with Julie! Your blue glass is just so light filled, reflective, and gorgeous. I think all those objects make a wonderful composition. I've been in a slump, but glad I dropped by. Feel inspired by your work as always....
