The painting is complete! Life is a Carnival Glass!!!
My last post was a Work in Progress for this piece. I still had lots to do and I saved the tough stuff for last as I always do :) I am so please with how this piece turned out. I have found that reflections are not as hard as they may seem. What I do is under paint what is behind the reflection first and then dry brush the reflection over the top. Works well for me!
I was first thinking to call it 'Top Shelf China', but that didn't really do it for me. Then I thought of the song by the Band - Life is a Carnival, so why not 'Life is a Carnival Glass'. That worked!!!
I had a frame all ready for this and have it hanging next to my china cabinet so you can see the still life and the painting together. Typically, everything I do is for sale. My mentor thinks I should keep this one for myself. I do have it for sale right now though on Daily Paintworks. Thank so much for looking! Prints are also available on Fine Art America here: Buy Print!
