View Full Version : something a little different

This is part one of a pair...the second one is on the easel now. It's a weird size: 4.5 x 18 inches. Assorted softies on Wallis Museum.

Another winner Kim. I really like the reflections in the table and the reflection in the vase. Great job.

Fabulous painting. I can almost reach out and touch that lace tatting and the reflections are so darn realistic I thought it was a photo at first glance. The wood looks freshly polished. Love the format, it works really well with this subject matter. A+!

Really neat, Kim! I LOVE the verticle here...each section is a study in surface....reflection of wood, glass, distortion of object and color, and texture....
(and a very very successful way to use up that bit of Wallis left over, too!)
Very nice!

Kim, when I see your name, I know that it will be another great post. You have not disappointed. Great reflections and beautiful job on the lace.

Kim, when I see your name, I know that it will be another great post.

I, too, love to look at your posts. As always, your glasswork is fabulous. And the table-wow.

I absolutely love this! The long format is so interesting, like a slice of a still life. Can't wait to see its partner.

Hi, Kim! This is an utterly gorgeous painting! And what a strikingly wonderful concept and composition! Love the way you move from darks at top and bottom to lights in the mid-area---and in such different ways. A delicious variety of shapes and edges! A very exciting painting to look at! And very much looking forward to what's on the easel, now! :-) Donna ;-}

My goodness, it's incredible!!

Please, please, please show us work-in-progress on your next one!!!

Thanks to everyone for your comments! You are all extremely kind and give me such a boost. I thank you all for your insight.

Ronda--that's my mother's table, so of course it is freshly polished :) (Her house is like a still-life setup warehouse--she has so many beautiful things!)

Anne--I will do a WIP soon, but I don't have time yet. I have to pound out a couple more paintings for a February show, then I'll have a little breather before my next one in June. I promise I'll do a WIP during my "breather". (I have a bit of a Photoshop addiction, so I can't trust myself to start taking lots of photos while I'm on such a tight schedule, LOL.)

I like the depth in this painting - very realistic. Fantastic job in rendering the glass, lace and reflection. OK, I guess that would be everyting!! Love this!

Brilliant! Lol, you and me are on the same path these days, I've got a painting in this format right now! ;) This is a wonderful painting in every way, I like the subject, the close crop and the composition - working very well!! Can't wait to see the next piece.....

Wow!!!! what a wonderful composition. You are truly masterful in your still life painting. I have one tiny question- Does the vase have an etching on it or is that a small leaf at the bottom of the vase. My eye seems to be drawn to that point. I dont know if anybody else sees it that way or not. Love your work and look forward to your wip to come.

Stunning, Kim and such an interesting crop. You are a master of glass!

Kim - it's unlike most still lifes (in keeping with your style) which I appreciate so very much.

I wouldn't be surprised if this is the first to sell.... Just because it's so intriguing a crop.

Kudos! Barb

What a beautiful painting; and such wonderful colors. I love the crop and all the reflections. Great work:clap:

01-12-2008, 02:45 PM
Fantastic Kim, curious to see the second one.

Wonderful...so realistic. The reflections on the polished wood are exquisite! So is the doily. Beautiful work!

01-12-2008, 10:17 PM
Thanks again, everyone!

Todd, you're seeing the reflection of the doily on the bottom of the vase. That one leaf-shaped one could probably be less prominent, as you can't see that part of the doily. However, this is already at the framer's, so it's out of my hands :)

Great crop. I'ld love to see the 2 pieces together!

Thanks, Nancy :)

I posted the two together in the other thread.
