Broken Reflections

OilPainting2.png

Oil on stretched canvas. A study that turned into a more symbolic painting. Life, death, looking into the future, and reflections of the past.

The whole image was referenced from a still life I put together myself. Broken window glass, shot glass, glass ball, roses, broken tea pot, and a found dead bird. (The bird had passed while I was painting this and it struck me so I added it in, I hesitated on the decision but it makes the point.)

I used quite a bit of liquin and also a varnish on top- however I wish it were matte, but it works for display purposes.
