Preview #8 | "Glass" | Watercolor | 10.5 x 7"

These antique pearl Opera glasses are a favourite object of mine as subject matter and as a useful item. Elegant and evocative of a past era, their convex glass creates interesting reflections/refractions on the sheet music. The music is Valtz #7, Opus 64, #2, from a 1934 book of Chopin Valses that belonged to my Grandmother. The pages are tattered and yellow and perfect for painting, and often appear in my still life work.
