Detail - Baby's Breath in a Glass Vase

This painting was inspired initially when Jocelyn and I ventured north to Tobermory, Ontario, a few years back and purchased a small hand-blown glass vase by Robert Held Art Glass. It's such a wonderful piece! I purchased it at Golden Gallery Tobermory.

This was a very challenging painting as I generally do not work within such a dark overall value and yet the element of the baby’s breath I felt needed to play on a feeling of lights or celestial bodies in a night sky. This similar character of light exists within the complex layers of this vase of which I hoped to extend throughout this painting.

My hopes were to create a serene and quiet artwork. A piece to contemplate as one does when looking at a clear night’s sky.
