"Shalom Bayit -- Shalom in the Home" 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.

The very idea of peace in the home seems to be an alien idea for some people, I hear. Wouldn't it be so sad to grow up in a dysfunctional abode where people fight day and night, where there is such tragedy or trauma, where one doesn't have a sense of well being? I don't have that background, luckily, but have met those who do. Fortunately, I grew up with unconditional love -- some say this can't be so, but it is true to my way of thinking -- my mother was from Colorado, the southeastern corner of it -- pioneer family! My father escaped Nazi Germany, losing almost all of his immediate and extended family, just for being Jewish. Putting the two people together, with such diverse upbringing and background could made for a bit of chaos. But I feel very strongly that because of their different backgrounds and of the times in which they grew up, they emphasized the bond that family should have. I have tried to do the same, along with my husband, with my family. And I am eternally grateful to my parents for all the loved that has been shown to me and my siblings.
