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.
Painted onto the glass on the backside of the glass, reverse glass painting or Verre Eglomise has a long history in European Painting where it has been known since the 14th century as a traditional painting technique.
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 sea life from the Sea of Cortez in Baja 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!
