"Lilac Window Box in Santa Fe" by Karla Nolan, framed glass painting



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.

A NOTE: This time I have outdone myself. Or maybe not! If all goes as expected, I should be a very happy camper. I have been commissioned to paint an 18"x36" painting on glass. Now, you must remember how difficult it is to do this type of work. This art work goes to a very special friend and I have taken my time getting around to doing it -- I like to let the ideas swirl around my head. My best ideas often occur early in the morning or during a shower. Go figure. I don't always understand the creative process, I am just glad if I have the process. Why such a length explanation? Because I plan to "re-run" some of my previous glass paintings during this painting process. Promise to show you my painting when it's finished, though!



This is a window box I saw a while back while walking into art galleries on the famous Canyon Road in Santa Fe, New Mexico. I'm sure that you are aware that this is a premier, internationally known art town. People from around the world flock to it to take a dip in the rarefied atmosphere of unconventional and amazing Santa Fe. Adobe everywhere, the oldest town in North America -- a great amount of history here. And phenomenal art, ranging from classical and representational to far out contemporary, and that's not including the sculptures! Go....visit!!!!!
