African Art in Reverse Painting on Glass is a subject of my painting that I found to be fascinating! What a plethora of wildlife and beauty to be found there. Painting these beauties required absolutely no outside inspiration.
It is certain that the great creator spent some serious time in Africa.
Even though I greatly admire the big cats, there seems to be an endless supply of magnificence on this continent.
It goes without saying there is no shortage of cuteness as well.
These reverse painting on glass are for sale, with shipping and handling free. I will have each order insured as well, with no additional charges to you. It’s been on my mind while writing this that maybe the people who read it might want to know why it is that I paint on glass, so I think my next blog post will be an artist’s statement in the hope that it helps anyone who wishes to understand. Using oil paints, the process is time-consuming, so more often than not, there are 5 to 6 paintings in progress at any given time.
Please allow me to take this opportunity to thank the people who do read my posts for their interest!
Zebra Paintings in Reverse on Glass may not have been something I would have thought of doing on my own. It began years ago from a tiny bit of inspiration from my second grandson, Joshua. After driving the almost four hours it requires, I arrived at my son-in-law and daughters house in Niagara Falls. This was a trip only made once or twice a year, because of work, life, and motivation for the drive. My previous visit had been when Joshua was about 18 months old. He needed drainage tubes put in his ears because of repeated episodes of infections. At that point in life, he spoke only a few basic words.
When I parked the truck in the driveway though, after a friendly wave “hello” to their neighbor, Marty, imagine my surprise when Josh ran outdoors calling out “Gramma, Gramma, my favorite color is purple! and my favorite animals are zebras! I don’t know why God didn’t make purple zebras, Imagine my insight into this small person. A wonderful beginning it was! By the time I had finished painting the purple zebras, though, his thoughts had turned elsewhere.
Even though Josh was no longer interested in the Good Lord’s choice of coloration for wild beasts, he left his Gramma with a muse. A wonderful gift!continue reading
