Chipped Glass

I’m asked “Why did you give a certain name to a painting” and I don’t know. Sometimes it just shows up in my head. Nothing deep or heavy, it just sounds right.

This painting was done this morning, mostly with a palette knife and some of glazes and the edges reminded me of glass. That is about a close as I can get to why this name.

  2. Hi Ujwala, I like using a palette knife, the works looks different and pushes my imagination. Like everyone else, I get tired of working the same way all the time and trying something new gives me some need energy.

  3. I LOVE the effect of a palette knife. I’m always attracted to it. It seems to apply the paint with so much certitude and conviction. The painting looks great!

  5. Hi, dear Bob Martin. I love your Chipped Glass. Your picture reflects more than just glass bottles- While being glassy, their looks so fundamental as the freestones. That helps to look at the blazing surfaces from a different angle and thus a visual story touches – pierces with something above the wordy definition. Thank you for the sharing. Let me invite you to my on I hope you will enjoy the pictures that may be found in the archives of my blog. I hope to get your comments and thus eagerly look forward to your reply. Thanks once again.
