Formally trained by world accredited painter Dave Archer, a master a reverse glass painting, and the line drawing, VINCENT eagerly absorbed as much information as possible during the years that he worked beside David as his only invited student of reverse glass painting and close personal friend. "Those days were pure magic," claims VINCENT, and VINCENT plans on releasing additional editions of Paintings on the Reverse Side of Glass in the near future.
For now, and possibly ever, VINCENT does not paint on glass. This is for several reasons. Number one, he doesn't have a great artist like Dave Archer to work with and inspire him, and two, he don't have the space, not withstanding––the lacquer. A specific lacquer is a vital and necessary component of creating this type of art. It is no longer available. Without the correct lacquer, glass painting is impossible.
Because of the cost of his books, VINCENT has increased the price set by blurb by only 5% in the hopes of exposing more people to his work through his publications. He hopes you enjoy his portfolio, and be sure to visit VINCENT'S website at vincentstone.com.
