Reflective Art

Green Glass From Alexis by Janet Fish

I've always liked Janet Fish and how she could 'paint glass'. It is very difficult for me to try to paint like that, so lately I've been taking pictures of glass (mostly perfume bottles) and manipulating them. Below are some of my efforts.

Perfume bottles and drinking glasses.

Misc. glass in a metal net basket.

I pushed a crocus blossom into an empty bottle and balanced the bottle on the trunk of a pine tree. Later I rotated it,so it wouldn't be obvious that it was held in place, upsidedown by broken tree limbs.
