    Your glass work is so stunning, Jeff. Love the powder horn. In the prior piece, I found myself staring, an inch from the screen, at the hint of purple in the glass off the apple’s shadow. I have to see these in person. When’s your next BBQ?

    I agree, the glass in the last two pieces is amazing and I am totally envious, because I am pretty sure I can’t do that anymore, make glass look like glass, that is.

    Thanks Chris. Umm… is it *my* turn to host the next BBQ? 🙂

    Hey Tracy,
    Thank you. I think painting glass is pretty much like painting anything else – essentially just attempting to make careful observations – the difference might be that glass allows fewer shortcuts than you might be able to get away with, say, with an orange. But I’m sure you’d be able to paint a glass just fine.

    Well, thanks for the vote of confidence, but I literally just did a painting of a glass bottle that became an opaque glass bottle, by the time I was done with it:-). Pink of course!

    Is it gold around the run of the horn? Lovely … .

    Hi Deborah,

    It actually seems to be a brass fitting on the horn.
