"Paperweight reflections"

Petra, this is so beautiful! I have been staring at it for a long time and tried to work out your method of painting. How on earth did you paint that spilled water on table? Or is it sand? Whatever, it's stunning!!!

A superb study Petra. The glass is fantastic- you have a lot of skill.

A very sophisticated complex painting.The atmotspheric background works well, and is an interesting colour that is applied just right.

I have said this before, I am not a fan of still life, but yours, particularly this one, takes it to a new level. It takes a lot of imagination to make a paperweight intriguing.

Absolutely superb, Petra. I've not been on the site very much in last few months and so lovely to see one of your wonderfull still life paintings again. Your capture and depiction of light are amazing and your skill in this type of painting is unmatched.

You are a genius at painting glass objects and still life, Petra. This is super!

Simply stunning!

Another unbelievably well executed painting Petra, lovely golds and greens within the paperweight. Like everyone else I'm amazed by your skill.

This is amazing Petra. Well done :)

Brilliantly painted as always, your glass and reflections are just perfect.

Superb painting - it could only be one of yours Petra
