Marble, Marbles and More Marbles

I can't seem to get enough of this subject. Marbles are perhaps the most enjoyable and fun subject for me to paint. The play of light, refraction and color makes this painting realistic and surreal. This painting, with its shade of blue, plays on the visual eye to give the impression of high reflective qualities. The air bubbles are my favorite!

This particular still life is 8" x 10" but I intend to someday paint a huge canvas with this subject matter. I received numerous emails from people who are craving for me to paint a large painting. I seem to enjoy the smaller and more intimate scale for the moment.
