Candle in Glass

4" x 6" original watercolor

One of the wonderful things about this blog is I can
paint whatever moves me at the moment. When
visiting my daughter, Abbey last weekend,
I saw this candle on her bookshelf. I am not sure
what attracted me to it. But I wanted to see if I could
capture the glass and the burned down candle.
I kept a muted background so it would not compete
with the glass and give a nice warm tone. I tend to like
busy subjects so this was a good exercise for me.
