#15 Big Blue Marble

It’s rather audacious to try and draw a marble.  But I liked last night’s shadow picture so much, I felt like I had to up the bar a little bit.

There’s no tricks involved here (except for using Photoshop’s circle tool…there’s no way I would attempt a freehand globe!

I’m pleased with it, although I think I should have chosen the marble that had more “things” in it (what is that in a marble anyway) as I’m not sure it’s obviously a marble.

    The stuff inside a marble is more glass.

    Hi Paula! We just watched the video and that is so amazing!! I love those “how things are made” type shows and who knew that marble making was such a work of glass blowing art? (Well, not blowing, but you know). And who knew that a wad of wet newspaper was sufficient to keep your hand from burning on molten hot glass???

      Come up for one of the open studio tours we have around here, and you and the kids can enjoy watching glassblowers in person! 🙂
