Let it Shine

I interpreted this week's theme 'Let it Shine' at Try it on Tuesday in  different ways. Since it is summer in northern hemisphere, it could mean the shining of the sun; it could also mean the bright light of summer and its predominant color, yellow.

The top picture is a watercolor of melted butter in a mason jar. I did it on a coffee filter paper which I first made water resistant with gesso. Here I have tried to capture the transparent quality of both the glass and the liquid and the shine of reflected light on both.

This painting of sunflowers on a river rock is a more metaphoric interpretation of the theme. These large yellow flowers turning their face throughout the day in the direction of the sun light up the garden with their shine.

Finally, the one below is a mixed media art where yellow stands for shine.

Thanks for visiting. Linked to Try it on Tuesday.
