This design includes the martini glasses, a bronze champagne glass, and turquoise Mexican glassware, along with the pears. With each glass composition I painted, I thought about other possibilites for designs — it gets more exciting with each painting I complete. This painting is basically a primary triad of red, yellow and blue. Another challenge was the opaque champagne glass and how it reflected everything around it like a mirror. This painting was exhibited at the Octagon’s annual winter show in 2007.
