Glass Roses - a Mixed Media Painting

I started enhancing some of the shapes with colored pensils, thinking of glass, exploding glass, or broken glass shards.  I used to do stained glass windows years ago, maybe that is why I was thinking of this.  Then, while on break, walking by it while it was on the easle, at a distance ... shapes seemed to emerge ... like roses or rose petals.  So, I went with that thought and hinted at roses and leaves here.  But it still looks like glass to me, so it is named "Glass Roses".

I know exactly what you mean! Sometimes shapes just emerge and I love to have fun with colours and water and after that draw all the shapes I find.
I personally like your new creations and I love this title too!
