    Painting with Glass

    I just completed a wonderful learning experience at Bullseye Glass in Portland, Oregon. “Painting with Glass” was the class. The four day class was filled with information and experimentation in using various forms of glass to create images. We started with sheet glass that is then filled with layers of powdered glass, glass frit (shards of glass) and glass stringers (long spaghetti shaped glass). Our instructor, Louise Krampien, was very knowledgeable and provided hands on support and direction. I learned so much that my brain is buzzing. Now to play with all the glass I purchased!!

    What inspires you?

    Colors just grab me and draw me in. Color designs in magazines, in fabrics, in the skies. So on a recent trip to Sayulita, Mexico I was inspired around every wonderful corner of this sleepy little town. I love the vibrant colors they blend together in everything they create – pottery, blankets, and paintings. Wait till you see the oil painting I purchased there. Talk about color!! So what inspires you?
