The ornament is hand-painted on the inside of the hand-blown glass bulb with oil paint using the “Reverse Painting” technique. The foreground is painted first and the background is applied last. All the painting is done from the inside through the hole at the top of a glass ball using special narrow brushes. There are several layers of paint applied to achieve the effect of depth. The card explaining the technique is included.
Lighthouse on a coast
Lighthouses mark dangerous coastlines, hazardous shoals, reefs, rocks and safe entries to harbors; they also assist in aerial navigation. I painted one of the most famous and most photographed Lighthouses that protects the costal shores of MA, called Nauset Light. This picturesque Lighthouse with its red and white tower is a beacon of light on this beautiful sunny day. On the backside the sunny sandy beach with "beautiful swimmer" blue crab.
The ornament is 3x3 inches petite round shape.
It is sealed with a matching blue glass cap and an adjustable gold tassel on a top that allows for display on a Christmas tree or a decorative stand.
It is packaged in a blue velvet gift box with satin-lined inside.
Keep for yourself or make a gift for someone very special this holiday season.
