Glass Blowing

On The Pipe
6x9 Soft Pastel on ArtSpectrum Colorfix
By Tom Willa
$55 matted for 11x14 frame
Here's today painting. I wanted to paint in March and post it. Miki started working on a Series about glass blowing her first painting is posted. She has captured the furnace's heat with her painting. Glass blowing is difficult and intense subject to capture in a painting. She is definitely my source of inspiration. My design layout was to capture the molten glass which is the beginning of the bubble. Additionally in the background is a paddle with some freshly made cane cooling on the floor. My next painting should be a winter floral with a vase blown by Hugh. To see glass blown by Hugh visit French Curves their etsy page.

This is a really great painting that captures the glow of the hot glass. I don't think that shows up in the photo. Glass is difficult, but you did a supurb job with this painting.
