La Sirena
Reverse glass painting
16 x 20"
2011

Slip stream, quick silver sure, The Mermaid of the Sea of Cortez glides thru her realm. She is guardian and friend to all in her undersea home.

Filled with sea life, there is so much detail, I never tire of looking at it - A gem of a glass painting. Rich, jewel tone colors with gold and silver highlights gleaming softly throughout the piece.

I researched lots of sea life from the Sea of Cortez in Mexico, learning and loving that aspect as much as the actual work of the painting! (yes, art is work :) in a very satisfying way).

A jewel toned, delicate painting with gold paint highlights and tiny details that invite the viewer in for a closer look!
