The Glass Coin

I'm stoked that my painting, "Your Voice Was Smooth; Like Water Running Over Rocks" was chosen as the October cover art for Ontario-based Literary Zine, The Glass Coin.  The Glass Coin is a split-themed open zine that explores both sides of an idea...examples are "Heroes and Villains", "Eureka! and Oops!", and October's theme was "Oil and Watercolor".  

"Your Voice Was Smooth; Like Water Running Over Rocks"
24" x 36" x 1.5"
Oil and Mixed on Canvas

The irony lies in the fact that I used both of these seemingly unfriendly media in the painting that was chosen, and then some. I often work in collage, ink, acrylics, oils and watercolor in the same piece.  Maybe that makes me indecisive and a bit schizophrenic, or the other part of me believes that's my way of just trying to make everything get along in a sort of peaceful harmony that can be achieved only when the composition feels finished.

By the way, this piece is on display at The Blues Jean Bar in Snider Plaza and available for purchase. Message me for more details.


  1. We loved having your piece as this month's cover of The Glass Coin. In January & February our themes are Open Minds. I'd love to see something from you for those months.


  2. Thank you so much! I was honored to be featured. I love reading your work and the work of the other talented writers you feature. Will definitely submit something for "Open Minds"...a recently finished painting called "Big as the Sky" seems to fit the bill and I'll send you more info. Take care!

  3. Hi Gina,

    I looked and looked for your email here but can't find it so am 'penning' this little note here.

    I've discovered your artwork serendipitously googling and am in love with your circular series.

    I've featured this piece on my blog to illustrate the word mellifluous [which is a pretty darn tricky thing to do] as it not only does this perfectly but also is in keeping with my blog aesthetics = win, win.

    The post will be published on Wednesday 26.01.11 [Australian Eastern Standard Time] under the heading Word of the Week - Mellifluous.

    Again, I must say your work is gorgeous and I would love to be able to feature more of it in the future.

    Kindest regards,
