Perfume Bottle



I don't paint glass very often, but I was doing this as a scavenger hunt item. The painting is only 3 x 5 . The perfume bottle belonged to my mother. There are a pair of them and she always had them on her dresser. Now they sit on mine.

I remember those. I haven't thought about them in years. It must have been pretty special to paint one of them. It came out really good. You definitely captured the feeling of "glass".

Mickey - Thanks! I keep them sitting on my dresser just like mom always did. Some day I'll have to try her pink glass bowl.

OUTSTANDING, JOAN!!! I love the colors and transparency in this and the delicate way you've treated the bottle!! BRAVA! Happy 4th!

This is beautiful. It's very satisfying if you get glass right. I love also the wonderful watery shadows.
