I can't think of something more challenging to paint than glass. However it is really rewarding when it works well. This is a bottle of perfume that was given to me on my birthday. The bottle is so charming and unique I couldn't help but paint it.

An original Chinese takeaway box all the way from Chinatown, Boston. A friend of mine recently went to Boston and brought back this box, full of delicious treats (not Chinese). I have never actually been to Boston, but I thought it was nice of her to bring me an original chinese takeaway box, that we always see in the movies...
What better way to capture a gorgeous gift than in oils?
