Harmony Series: Peace, Joy, Love

Early in the year I painted a 3 part series devoted to my love of stained glass and my artist friends who so lovingly create them. One of my friends would privately recite a "love mantra" to herself as she placed each piece into the growing image. What a wonderful skill - to take things that are whole, break them into small pieces, and then place them back together--creating an entirely new image and work of art. Once broken--now whole. 

These 3 small paintings (each measuring 4x4) are first scratched using a sharp tool, then painted and gloss varnished. In a black frame they are unified, mounted on an eggplant colored mat, each surrounded by a black fillet. As paintings, do they call to mind the luminescence of glass?
