I used to be really afraid of painting glass until recently when I took a class with Lisa Daria and she told us not to try to paint the glass, but rather paint through the glass. It sounds so simple, but before that I would paint glass the way my mind thought it was, which was... umm... not exactly how it was. I have this problem often with many things besides glass. But now I'm really trying to just see the shape and form. I'm certainly not a master at it, but I'm finding that it helps just to be aware of the battle between what's in my mind and what my eyes really see.
