Session #240, Work #236

The beautiful blue ball of glass that is the focus of this painting is such an intense blue that I had to pull out my tube of pthalo blue in order to capture it. Ellie informed me that the glass ball was from Italy and handmade.


There must be over 100 objects in the cabinet and I’m sure I could ask Ellie about any of them and she would respond with a story of how she came by them. It is no wonder these items are so precious to us, they attach themselves directly to our memory like the thin strings of a spiders web, so fragile, and as easily broken as the object that anchors them.
