New Glass

Standard

SOLD

So, I’ve kind of changed my mind as to what I’m going to submit to paint on the cabinet.  Apologies for no ’round 3′ picture today, but here’s a still life of some new glass pieces I found at the thrift store!  Loved the colors and painting all the reflections.  I thought about rounding off and softening that really sharp edge of dark purple on the top left, but then decided I liked the sharp contrast among all the soft edges near by.  Since I use mostly re-cycled house paint, I tend to rely to heavily on the colors as they already are.  But this is the first painting in a long time that I actually like the composition and how the colors came out. (I did mix them of course).

Back to the Cabinet deal, I think I’m going with: the Breakfast theme, the idea of piles of shoes (an idea I’ve done in a previous painting- see the “stil life” tab to the left), and potentially sketch up a shot I got of flamingos from the Zoo.  They’ve asked for busy, high-contrast images to help keep the desire to tag the boxes with grafiti.  Since I didn’t enjoy painting the pie, as perfect as it would be for behind Perkins, I think I’ll give them 3 very different options and run with whatever they decide.  Here’s a sketch of the flamingos, cool pattern it makes huh?
