1st Painting of 2012!!! inspired by glass.....

this painting came about as a starter for getting some paint squeezed out and to start the process of playtime!!.....it was inspired by one of my fave glass bowls from a couple of years ago....which you can see in the next image....as you can see, glass and paint are quite different.....the glass is glossy and finely finished....and perhaps i could do that with paint, however, i don't want to even try!!!!

the whole reason that paint and mixed media is sooooooo appealing to me is because it can be raw and rough and kinda messy and still be quite groovy.....and even though my glass is quite imperfect, it is still a particular process and needs more care in assembly.....all of which suits me just fine too!!!

i feel endlessly grateful to have the choice to decide which medium to play in....depending on how i feel that day....(or sometimes depending on what opportunities i have for my creative offerings!) either way, i love it!!!!

p.s. oh yah, the painting is upside down...i didn't paint it that way, but that's the direction i liked best when it was done!!! with a bowl, every way is right side up!!

p.p.s.  i'm in good company too, marc chagall was a painter and glass crafter as well!! not that i think i'm in his league or anything...just saying, there is a history of this....!!!! ha ha
