"Plentiful Petunias" 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.

I have, unfortunately, always thought that petunias were the most common flower and, for me, impossible to grow. Now how can a petunia be impossible to grow? You have to deadhead the old fashioned kind, that is picking off the dead or dying flowers so that they won't work at producing seeds and stop blooming. The problem there is that the petunias at the base of the flowers are sticky. I guess I'm a tactile sort or something but I don't like the stickiness of the petunia for some reason. So....I'm just not the best petunia grower. The newer hybrids are easier to deal with, as they are self cleaning.

I'm up in Jackson, Wyoming, right now because I have an art opening this Thursday evening. While walking around looking for a place to have dinner, I saw many beautiful hanging baskets just shining with gorgeous, colorful petunias! So...here is my ode to petunias in Jackson, a visual poem.
