  • Reverse Painting on Glass displayed at Jonny B’s Tavern

    The Rennie family at Jonny B’s are wonderful people to continue to feed me now and then, so Rich and I will continue the Reverse Painting on Glass displayed at Jonny B’s Tavern.

    It would be impossible to hang all of the reverse paintings on glass down there, so we change them out now and then, in an effort to keep the patrons having something to enjoy and hopefully converse about.   People are probably getting tired of the seasonal paintings, especially winter so we have moved the Watkins Glen series down in addition to the Pet Portraits.  Rich wanted to take some of the Big Cat Paintings, or maybe the African Art, but Pam Rennie leaves this up to me, so I have to decide what people might want to see.  It’s a tall order!

    Pet portraits are wonderful to paint.

    When I paint them, I always begin with the eyes.  I need to know where they’re looking.  Not to say I can’t paint in a whisker or strand of fur in the same painting session, but the eyes need to be in place before I can go further.  Some people like to take pictures of their pets as much as they like taking photos of their children.  I like to take the best of these photos and use them as a model for a reverse painting on glass.

    I paint in oils on the back side of glass.  The side the painting is viewed from is opposite of the side of the glass that the paint is not on.  So if the subject of the reverse painting on glass is facing left when I look at it, he will be facing right when you view him, as Dolce is in the painting above.  The oils take time to dry, and I can not work on wet paint without making a mess, so, some of my paintings take months to accomplish.
