Preening, 20 x 20
This painting was done a few months back, but I am looking at it and thinking that it would be fun to paint something reflective today... I love playing with these mercury glass bottles in my collection of props, and I recently bought some new silvery vases that might be interesting to try. As I tell the painters in my workshops, there isn't a special secret to painting silver, just paint what you are seeing, and it starts looking shiny! I'll see if that happens today. It is good to be back home and in the studio after our brief trip to New Orleans.
