"Fort Collins: Horsetooth Mountain and Flower Fields" by Karla Nolan, framed painting on glass

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.

I have been out of commission for a couple of weeks for various reasons. The primary reason for this is I have moved my art studio from a tiny room in the house to a more spacious one -- little did I know what I was getting into! Tortuous throwing out of old stuff -- decluttering, organizing, revamping, the usual chores one does when moving. I find it to be an agonizing and never ending process -- I'm still sifting through papers even now!

The commission I was hired to paint is finished and you can see it above -- what a job! It was nerve wracking and fun at the same time -- the largest painting on glass so far...I have temporarily named it "Fort Collins: Horsetooth Mountain and Flower Fields". The woman who requested the painting gets the final say on the title. Hope you enjoy the view!
