This week I was still excited to be painting glass and started a painting of three jars that we have excavated from the ravine. Not too far into the painting I realized that I really didn't like the composition but decided that I needed to finish it.... (I have issues with finishing things sometimes :/ ) ...just to get more experience with painting the glass.. and because I was already painting over a painting and I didn't think the canvas could hold another one...
So my lesson learned this week would be to really think about my composition before committing to it!

I like it. It keeps the eye moving and looks beautiful. I especially like the reflections and distortions in the blue glass. The colored glass is gorgeous, and the clear glass has been handled just right.
