As an author, I have a lot of down time, or avoidance time, as I often call it. I end up doing weird artwork with glass. All designs are sketches, hand drawn by me, then transferred to glass by hand. No laser machines here.
In the pointillism above, I enjoyed taking photos and such, then making images that I could transfer to glass. At first, the images were drawn small and low quality only to be used as transfers, but eventually they grew into artwork in of themselves. Hence the image quality difference. Some are better than others, and is usually directly related to interest in the image it's self. And all of them were designed to put into glass, though not all of them have been.
Stained glass however was a different experience. It was both easier and harder than I thought it would be. It requires a lot of precision, which isn't something I am spectacular at. I am generally a "close enough" kind of gal. I started learning stained glass in December of last year. I have only done four pieces to date and I almost gave up on my third piece. Which would have totally been my fault. I got cocky... As you will see in the images below, and bit off way more than I could chew. The project is done though, even though it sat untouched through most of 2020 because I was too stubborn and irritated at it to finish it. And I am making projects again. The first two images are lotus bosoms that I got from another person. I wanted something easy to learn on. But it was sooo easy that I got cocky and jumped right into the project that was the whole reason I even learned to do stained glass. My Hogan. So, with the exception of the two weird looking flowers, all of the other stained glass are 100% my own designs. Oddly designing stained glass images is even easier than pointillism. and WAY faster!
