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.
"Welsh Blue Hydrangea" is the result of a visit to Tenby, Wales, many, many years ago. Tenby is a charming town, right on the sea. I'm part Welsh, something my mom was very proud of, and I enjoyed the two visits I've made to that country. Americans are sort of novelties there -- and that makes it even more fun! We take ourselves for granted, don't we? While walking through Tenby, I saw the most amazing grouping of hydrangeas -- both blue and pink -- and I've never forgotten them. I photographed them and am still mystified at how they thrive there while I can't get them to grow here! Nonetheless, here's one of my takes on them.
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!
