Green Vaseline Glass on Teal Plate with Lemon


Here I am again painting this interesting green vaseline glass. When the light is just right the glass fluoresces. 

The National Bottle Museum in Ballston Spa, NY has a huge collection of bottles including green vaseline glass. I purchased mine at a flea market. I'm told the glass is considered to be harmless and only negligibly radioactive!
A  previous post Green Vaseline Glass on Blue Plate has some information on this glass.

Clear Glass Bowl on Blue and Yellow Papers

 I'm pleased with this painting even though it looks simple and it took me a while to figure it out. I had to get the shape of this fluted bowl right and its shadow to work. I wanted the viewers' eye to go to the bowl, then to its shadow and then finally the bowl's distortion of the background. I'm excited about painting glass and it's definitely going to be one of my next year's challenges.
