A rich, simmering blend of my favorite things

Glassybaby Paintings


Over the last few years, I’ve gathered a collection of glassybabies. What is a glassybaby? It is a candleholder/vase/cup/whatever you want to use it for. They are made by a local company and you see them all over Seattle in hotels, restaurants, and homes. I’ve gained my collection through PopCap. They are often given away for recognition of good work, holidays such as birthdays, or team outings.

The head of my department is a big fan because of the glassybaby backstory. They were originally created by a woman struggling with cancer, who enjoyed the hope and light the candleholders gave. The company donates part of their procedes to charities supporting those struggling with cancer and other worthy organizations.

I now have 6 of these beautiful things and found some inspiration last week to paint them. I started out with a blue one that I love.

and then moved on to the green…

And then I ended with my favorite one, which is called “creamsicle”.

When I set them all up together, I have a painted collection to go with my glass collection! I think I’ll find a cute little triptych frame to display them all.

I’m pretty happy with how they turned out. It took awhile, but I think that I was able to capture the way that they glow and radiate warmth.

I like how they all turned out a little different in size and style. It works. Each glassybaby is handmade and different from all the others. If you would like to learn more about glassybabies or get some for yourself, check out their website. http://www.glassybaby.com/

Maybe they can add a little light and hope to your home too.
