I started this piece as a still life. I was intrigued with the various vessels but in progress the woman seemed to magically insert herself in the scene. A painted version of magical realism. I like the sort of tropical atmosphere it emits.

Glenn considers his paintings to be "somewhere between dreams and reality." Opposed to telling stories directly, he prefers to present his work and leave the interpretation to the viewer.
