Colored Bottles

These bottles I painted are from a Helen Van Wyk study. I don't agree with everything she says but that's true of all artists that you study. You take a little from this one and a little from that one.  

5x7 ampersand gessobord $25.00 + shipping

The only exception I've found so far is Carol Marine. She is 
spot-on with everything she says and is truly not only the master 
of her craft but is very generous with sharing her knowledge.  

Glass fun facts:

Before man figured out how to craft glass, nature was already making it. When lightning strikes sand, the heat sometimes fuses the sand into long, slender glass tubes called fulgurites. The intense heat of a volcanic eruption sometimes fuses rocks and sand into a glass called obsidian. In early times, people shaped obsidian into knives, arrowheads, jewelry, and money.
