an oldie

(22x30)
This is a painting I did in the still life group I belonged to; we broke up two years ago this week when our teacher and mentor, Carolyn Howard, died.
All of the objects pictured here, except the electrical-thingy on the far left, were Carolyn's. I love the fluted vase, second from right, and the curly-topped one.

The different shades of blue and green glass are just gorgeous. Nice job on the shadows to.

Such a pretty, light-filled piece - a memento of happy times I think.

Love those cool shades Laura.
Glass is really hard I think, with all the reflections as well as maintaining the transparency.
Thanks for the view.

Oh my, how lovely. It must be the time of year. I was thinking about people I miss today too.

Beautiful job on these, Laura. They sparkle and glow.

Re: Carolyn... I just lost a neighbor and friend last week (an older man... he was 81)and I can't help but look at his closed-up lonely little house and realize how his many little kindnesses (he was always ready to share his home-grown produce and a joke) became a nice part of my life. He will be greatly missed - but I'm so glad I got a chance to get to know him.

How beautiful, and since Carol is gone now, how wonderful that you have this to remember her by as well.
