"Reversing the painting process gives me the pleasure of being able to create my favorite parts first... all of the lovely details! The eyelashes, wisping hair, or the stamens of the flower. One of the creative challenges when doing this technique is thinking about what should go first in order for it to be seen. I do a lot of layering and use a razor blade to scratch off portions of paint to reveal something, building up the color and textures. Each time I finish a reverse glass piece I have learned another process, and am excited about the possibilities for the next one. It has shown me how to experiment with new mediums, embellishments and mixing medias."
