McDonell first paints the artwork, then lays the glass, carefully selecting pieces with textures and color nuances that work with his vision of what he would like to portray.
Cutting glass is precise work, and it is not easy to get shapes to fit with such exactness as you see in McDonell’s work.
I like the primitive quality to his work. It reminds me of Caribbean artwork, similar to pieces I will be featuring in tomorrow’s blog post. McDonell is from Cedar Key, Florida. See more of his work on the website he hosts within Fine Art America: fineartamerica.com
