A few months ago, I was at a friends wedding and at the end of the ceremony all the guests got this cute glass rose with a silvery-plastic stem and leaves. It had been among my knick-knacks of objects to paint, so finally last night I composed a dramatic setup in a shadow box and gave it a go.

I have always been fascinated with Rembrandt and how his paintings were influenced by dramatic light. So here is the glass rose in a vase under a dramatic light. For those who like Rembrandt's work, check out David Leifell's work, he is very good.

Size: 5" x 7"
Time Taken: 2hours approx.

wow! I think this is your best yet! I can't wait til you start showing your work at some venue in your home area.
I am sure you will get a very positive response!

Thanks Alan, Thank you for the encouragement, I agree with you that this is one of my best work so far... Smile. I am feeling more relaxed and confident with WSO and developing a intuitive feel for the medium. I am beginning to enjoy it a lot.

I truly think painting small and often is really helping me. I am trying to reach 100 small paintings before I start putting them up for sale.

Thanks once again.
