Goblets #1 (Sunday Shadows)

Goblets #1 (Sunday Shadows)


This is the first still life with glassware that I started in early October 2006. I set up the still life with my favorite purple goblets with pears in the sunroom, and worked from my photos because the light changes constantly.

What drew my eye were the glass abstractions and distortions of color patterns and the shadow patterns on the wood table. Once I started painting, I noticed more details, such as the color reflections in the glass — a very complicated design!
