Day 7/30 - The Big Blue - Small Still Life Painting

The Big Blue
3 x 4 inches
acrylic on canvas

Marbles! I've wanted to paint glass marbles for a while - and when I heard the theme for the next show at MixtMedia Gallery is "Reflections" I thought it would be the perfect opportunity! I was considering doing a long vertical painting with marbles, but I decided to do these little ones to practice first - and now I'm thinking I may do 3 or 4 of these to hang together instead.

The marbles are so interesting to paint. You get all caught up in the abstract shapes and swirls - and then it starts all coming together and actually ends up looking like a marble! The blue marble in this painting keeps making me think of a snow globe.....
