I have been collecting vintage and new tinted glass bottles all summer.
This painting started out as a study of light through glass with only one bottle, and then another and another until it grew into this monster project on a full sheet of paper.
When I was in college one of my favorite teachers was Professor Louise Stahl.
I was lucky enough to get into her Color Theory class Sphomore year.
One assignment was to set up an abstract painting using only the tinted lights crossing
and overlapping within a light booth.
Since I pretty much just drew my way through college,
this was very different and challenging for me.
But probably the class I learned the most from that year.
This painting is in homage to a fabulous teacher and a great learning process.
My interests here are reflection, refraction and most of all the light.
I'm a bit obsessed with this idea right now and most mornings can't wait to get back to my table!
I don't know if this will be a keeper but I'll keep plowing through to find out.
I'll be back with more progress. Stay tuned!
