ALERT: You are about to view art of a different nature. These are paintings on glass -- that is, painted directly onto glass with specially formulated glass paints. They are always framed for the protection of the glass. The paints often are transparent and sometimes opaque, giving a stained glass appearance under good light. They, like all fine art, should not be hung in direct sunlight. The photographs do not do them justice -- my colors are very vibrant. Close ups are available, just e-mail me for information (see below). In most instances, click on the actual image for an even larger image to view -- you'll see lots of different items such as marbelization, transparent or opaque parts of the work -- try it and see! Commissions are accepted.
When travelling through Italy at various times, we've seen bougainvillea growing all over the place. The climate there is perfect for these lovely plants -- so vibrant! I drove one of my daughters and my husband crazy running around Rome taking pictures of them....oh well, such is life with an artist, right? Huh? (Nodding in agreement, I hope...)
My framed paintings on glass will be featured in December at the Fort Collins Museum of Contemporary Art Holiday Show -- so if you are interested in any of the recent small works for yourself, buy them now, as they may be gone after the show!
