I believe all acts of creativity take you on a journey. I find that I may have a plan or hope of where I am going, however I never truly know where the journey will take me. This is why it is so important to LOVE the process.

One's destination is never a place, but rather a new way of looking at things. ~Henry Miller

Thanks Jillian :) I am really drawn to how light is reflected in glass, and if I can find a way to include it, I will!

I must have looked at this painting a hundred times today on daily paintworks. Amazing detail and colors, and wonderful job with the glass. Yours is the level I hope to be someday! Love it!

Wonderful, Liz! I love how you caught the light hitting the lettering on the jars. A subtle thing, but very well done!

Thank you Alison for sharing!

If your goal is to grow as an artist, keep striving every time you are in front of the canvas and you will get there! Nothing beats putting in the hours and being fearless about making mistakes... Only through experimentation does one grow.

Good luck, Liz
