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!

Carolyn! I wanted to answer the previous post, but there are roses blooming! It is such a great job! I love this painting with your interesting technique! These subtle forms of colored glass! It is incredibly delicate and sensitive work!
It really is Summer in your wonderful world of flowers and your dreams and fantasies! :-)
