Teaching Myself This Craft

Second piece finished!

The first two "stained glass" pieces are in plain clear 3mm glass I got from our local hardware store to learn how to cut the glass, foil and to solder the pieces back together - it's definitely a learning process! (This looks like it's been covered with a coat of patina but not yet. The actual piece still has the silver solder color.) Thank you for visiting. Please come back soon!

Something New!

I have always been in love with stained glass art. During tennis districts last summer, my bestie picked out the best B&B for us to stay and it was FULL of stained glass. Before this month, I never considered I'd one day try it. Don't ask me how this craft's path suddenly became real to me... I have NO idea. One day I found myself in a stained glass shop buying supplies and getting very excited! 😃 Who would've ThUnKeD? Now it's a whole new world!

This is my first completed piece! Done in clear glass so that if I mess up I won't be to heartbroken. In this piece, I practiced cutting glass in a straight line, copper foiling and soldering.

SCANDAL

Acrylic on 20x16" canvas. (This piece will be available as soon as it completely cures and is varnished.)

I call this Scandal probably because I've been bing watching Scandal on Netflix. LOL! But it does look like the olive on the right did something wrong and the other two on the left are discussing it.

It's been hard to concentrate on the canvas these day but I am making it my mission to get back into the "stroke" of things! I'd really like to have a regular studio schedule like I used to about a decade ago.

Thank you for visiting. Please come back soon. This is my latest piece. Several people on FB asked me why olives. I don't know... why not? LOL!

JAY

8"x10" acrylic on canvas board.

I painted this partly using my fingers and partly with a small brush to get the smaller details.

Finger Painting!!!

My first finger painting since preschool!


"Penny" acrylic on 16" X 20" canvas.


A close up....
#fingerpainting

A friend of mine showed me Iris Scott's art and I was immediately interested in trying finger painting. I like the fact that I am not using brushes and can't get to mired down in the tiny details. This is more Impressionistic in style which is fun (I strongly believe impressionism is coming back in favor soon)

As Promised

There's a blog post I made a few years ago, "TaDa". That post is linked to a Pinterest photo and both seem to be very popular. I shared the link to Ravelry's pattern but the link sends you around and around and around. Some of you may be patient, determined and lucky to finally find the pattern, but recently I gave up on that link.

'•'¯°··°¯ '•'¯°··°¯ '•'¯°··°¯ '•'¯°··°¯ '•'

Here's my version of the Heart part of the pattern (I made slight changes to, years ago.).
Again, I used the heart pattern from the old pattern because I didn't copy the entire pattern. When I made the adult size sweater, I incorporated cable patterns from a book of cable patterns. The actual sweater pattern is a basic sweater pattern I have in my head... you can follow any basic sweater pattern and add your own cable designs.

More Bombshell Glasses

Sssshhh! These are gonna be a surprise!

I am doing a bunch of caricature glasses of my tennis teammates/friends. I had 7 completed but 3 of them had something wonky wrong in the glass stem area, so I am starting over with those (once the paint is baked onto the glass I can't do much with mistakes. 😞 )

Sadly, these two peeps are moving away soon. So, I made sure they were painted first. I will miss them terribly!
