Pool Bowl


oil on hardboard panel
6'' x 6''

bidding has ended on this painting

I bought these pool balls a while back, but couldn't find a good way to present them. I photographed them six ways to sunday, but wasn't impressed with what I'd come up with. So I dumped them into this old glass bowl. Voila! I loved the distortion imparted by the varying thickness of the glass. Especially around the rim. I spent a lot of time on this painting trying to portray the subtle variations of shadow, and reflection on the polished surface of the balls.
