Mercury Glass - SOLD
5 x 7 oil on panel
Mercury glass, also known as silvered glass, contains neither mercury nor silver. It's actually clear glass, mold-blown into double-walled shapes and coated on the inside with a silvering formula. There is a nostalgia associated with these decorative ornaments and they do have a special appeal that can't be found in ornaments created today.
These ornament sized paintings are a break for me between painting larger pieces in my current boat series, which is on # 11 out of 15 planned pieces. I am on track, more or less, just need to really focus on painting, which is why this blog is a little sporadic over the last few months. However, I can see light at the end of the tunnel. Here's a little peek at what's on the canvas right now. I can't reveal completed paintings until my solo exhibition opens in the spring, but I can provide little glimpses like this. :)
