• New York State Park Paintings

    Lately the production of my New York State Park Paintings, a series of 6 has been doing very well.

    First LP painting

    They began at Watkins Glen, and this was the first to be completed, with the waterfall at Watkins Glen being the second.

    State Park

    This last week end, I had the opportunity to meet a lady named Roberta, who originally came from the Watkins Glen area, and graciously, gave to me a photo of one of her own favorite areas of that park.  This morning I was close to being in shock to learn she lives only a couple miles from my husband and myself!  I have lived here almost 40 years, and still have neighbors to meet.  So, it’s safe to say I am not yet finished with the Watkins Glen State Park reverse paintings on glass.  So very much area to cover.


    are 4 additional paintings in progress, in my studio at this time, of varying views of these beautiful, water falls, all within New York State.

    My husband and I recently visited the Pixley State Park, where the Pixley Falls are, and Niagara Falls as well.  There will be more reverse painting on glass to come, even when this series of six is complete.

  • Wizard of Oz in Reverse Painting on Glass

    My Little Pretties

    My Little Pretties

    As you can see, I did my time in the Land of Oz.  I Barely escaped, but singing like a munchkin after almost 2 years!  These reverse paintings on glass can be found with detailed information on my web site, where prices are included.  Please feel free to browse at your leisure.


    Are You Alright?

    When the project was finished, I asked my youngest daughter if she had ever seen the movie.  Her reply was that she didn’t need to.  She could just look at the paintings.

    With the movie industry evolving the way it has for the last 77 years, small children would probably be more amused rather than scared out of their pants by the “Wizard of Oz”.  Our levels of being frightened have evolved at an alarming pace.  It seems as though animation has added a whole new dimension to our abilities to process fear.  My own opinion is that it’s the world that is becoming scary.


    How ever, I was fortunate enough to have married a man who understood.  Rich can do all of the Scarecrow’s dances.  He could also sing all of the cowardly lion’s songs.  He knows this movie like no other!  I was properly impressed!

  • Technique of Reverse Painting on Glass

    Let me begin by saying that I have never taken classes for reverse painting on glass.

    Garden Variety Floral Art

    Urn of Petunias

    But I have taken several classes, from various teachers in oil painting, and I ve studied reverse painting on glass for many years, so this is what I have come up with.

    Pet Portraits

    Springer Spaniel

    I work in oils.  That was what I began painting with, and returned to the few times I played around with acrylics and water paint.  My credentials are limited.

    Reverse painting on glass is an ancient form of art, developed in the far east.  It has been done for thousands of years.  Unlike traditional painting, where the background is laid in place first, the subject of the painting going in afterward, in reverse glass painting, the last thing that entered into the painting are, is painted in first

    In most, but not all cases, that would be the subject of the painting.  The exception to this might be a shadow, or maybe a reflected image, such as sunlight playing off an eye.  A mirrored image, such as would be found on the surface of water might also be an exception.

    Many of my paintings are begun by using skewer sticks used for grilling because the detail is very fine.  After these details are in the painting and dried, I progress to a no. 5 round brush.  This has a very fine tip also, but slightly larger as well as being flexible.

    By the time I finish a painting, it may well be by Painting with a natural sea sponge.  It depends on what kind of ‘feel’ needed for the back ground of the reverse painting on glass.

  • Reverse Painting on Glass

    Hi, my name is Sally Tagliere.

    I began painting in oils on canvass at a young age, but at the same time was rather taken by the reverse paintings on glass I had seen at antique shows.  Even though a few of them were close to 200 years old, the colors in them still popped.

    Paintings of Summer

    Summer Fun

    After several years of framing my paintings, I found the glass panes piling up, so using the experience I already had, I ran with it.

    The first things to enter the painting were the last things that happened in the scene.  If I painted the subject facing left, because the final view would be from the opposite side of the glass, you would see it as facing right.

    The underlying theme of my work is based on nature, mankind and Christianity; how they relate to one another and to each other.
