Another little gem for sale.
These little paintings are so much fun to make. They're reverse painted on glass, which means that I have to work backwards — painting the details first, like the stars and clouds and then working my way back to the final background black coat. It's opposite the traditional way of painting on canvas, where the artist puts down the background first and then works toward the details in the forefront.
It's just a different way to do it, but what I really like about painting on glass is that the colors really shine and glow. The glass acts as a nice prism, and since there is no air between the paint and the glass, the colors are able to be as brilliant as possible.
This comes on it's own stand, so it can stand up on your desk or on a shelf. A window into another world.
