Since January I've been working on a series of paintings based on the theme of a face distorted through textured glass. I'm really drawn to glass as a subject and will certainly complete more paintings focusing on these sorts of distortions and the abstract qualities of such a subject matter.
Here are the progression pictures for the fourth in the series which I completed today. The other paintings can be viewed on my website.

I love both the structure and colour of these little plants and have a few different varieties in my garden. Another reason I chose this subject matter was that I enjoyed the contrast between the rich colour and spikey textures of the sempervivum against the smooth, pale, sea-washed pebbles.
This painting is in oils on canvas 16 x 20 inches.
