Dancing on Glass by Amy Crook

Dancing on Glass by Amy Crook

This is another piece from about the same era — I got into a phase where I was painting with acrylics on shards of broken glass. Surprisingly, I didn’t cut myself nearly as much as you might think. You can see the same fascination with dancers, though — I’ve always been pleased with the feeling of grace in this piece.

I never did figure out a good way to display any of these pieces, though, and I’m not sure I even still have them. If I recall correctly, this one’s about the size of a 3″x5″ index card, and the background is literally painted on the back side of the glass, with the figure floating a few millimeters above it on her own surface.

    I love this piece. Especially love the details. Too bad you don’t have it anymore.

      Now you’re gonna make me go look and be sure I don’t have it… I honestly am not sure. There are secret boxes of things that the glass paintings might be in hiding in upper corners of my closet still!
