Nest in Tree

Nest in Tree I painted this work back in 09. It had been tucked away in corner. I had been hiding it. At the time of completion I did not like this painting. Maybe the plan result never came to light or I just was not feeling great. Fast forward 7 years and i feel [...]

  • Blue Bird Fence Post painting by Michael Glass

Bluebird on Fence Post

When driving around Darke County in western Ohio, I often come across a quick visual treat. A bluebird zipping low over fields and grasslands of the farming community I call home. Once you learn what a bluebird looks like they are often hard to miss. My wife always reminds me that they look like grumpy [...]

Blue Bottle Sketch

Blue Bottle Sketch I woke up the other day thinking about old bottles. In particular, the blue ones. An image came to mind that was not completed. That is what I’m going to paint. This composition will be a  partial thought of a blue bottle. The bottle will hold some sort of flower or flowers. [...]

Sunflowers In Field

This expressive, abstract artwork has a very relaxing feel to it - but contrasting that relaxing feeling is an impending storm that can be seen blowing in from the distance. While observing the [...]
