A New Year

I hope that this new year brings joy and peace in your lives.  I definitely could use that as well as reconciliation and healing.  I am learning to surrender at the moment as we have moved to a new place this year and I do not know when I will be able to create glass art or paint again.  I am working on restoring our marriage right now.  I will keep posting glass work and paintings and talking about them.  I keep up on drawing and will show those from time to time. 
Happy New Year!

Merry Christmas ! I hope you all have a wonderful time.
We are going to have a quiet time at home.  My son has been sick the last few days so we are hoping he gets well quickly and that we stay healthy.

"Gusty"- stained glass process

This image shows how I draw a line in the middle of the clear bevel and place the colored glass on top, drawing the shape onto the colored piece and cut that shape.  I will then bevel the colored piece and later bond it on top of the clear bevel.

"Gusty"- stained glass process

The stained glass piece titled Gusty that I showed in a previous blog was a fun project to work on and I thought I would show pics of the process.  This will have more details compared to the cabinet project.  This shows the drawing and layout of the design and a few clear glass pieces in the upper left of the picture which will be hand beveled.

Light/shadow/texture- a photograph

I took this picture in CA a month ago.  I love the texture and light/shadows. Inspiring for glass and painting.

Living Room window

This design was fun.  2 shades of blue hand beveled and bonded on top of commercial triangle bevels.  The red pieces are also hand beveled to give more light play.
