These floats were a gift to me on Christmas from my sister. I Love Them!!! The challenge with this painting was to depict the cloth and create a transparency through the floats. As I have previously, stated painting transparency is one of my greatest delights. But, seriously, depicting the color of the floats and then maintaining an illusion of depth through the glass proved to be really hard. Many wipes outs later I finally achieved what it was I was looking for. It is wonderful to be mindful of your strokes and color, but it is helpful when you lose yourself in the image and instinctively put brush to board.
