Skiing in Central New York hasn’t been possible for the most part in the. last two years. When the snow was here, so was the bitter cold. and when the temperatures were right, there wasn’t enough snow.
When skiing is the one thing you look forward to doing in winter, these statements can be painful. There was a storm last night, and it continues to snow today, now that it’s already late in January, so I do have hopes of being able to go out this weekend with my husband, my sister and brother-in-law.
We ski the canal trail out of Booneville quite often, but Jeanette and Tim are ready to try something different, so we may end up on the Egypt Rd. trail on Saturday.
Rich and I have been there with the Special Olympic people a few times and are familiar with the trail. There are a lot of hills sharp turns, and all manner tests to pass up there without taking a spill. That would not be new to us either, we go for the fun and the work out,
not to mention a couple of beers and some hot wings at the local pub. Incidentally, the name of it is The Pub.
May all who read this have as good of a weekend as I hope for!continue reading
Let me begin by saying that I like to work on my seasonal paintings in reverse painting on glass in series. It isn’t just the cost of the oil paints, but more the train of thought that causes this.
If there are five or six glass paintings going on in the studio at one time, and they are all of or related to the same subject, it is very likely that many of the same colors will be used on each of them. The reason for there being so many paintings being done at once is that when the oil paints are applied to the glass, (a non porous surface) requires several days to dry. If it isn’t dry when it’s painted on again, the risk of smearing the paint is great. If there is paint to be smeared, the job is mine.
Because we are half way through November at this time, there are paintings being done of Autumn leaves in the process in the studio. I have been working on reverse paintings of New York State Parks, but I really needed a break from the waterfall life, before going back to it. If the paints don’t dry in time for me to work on them again, I can always return to Pixley Falls for a session or two.
My reverse paintings on glass that you see on this page, as well as others, are for sale. More information can be found on my website All shipping and handling costs are included in the price of the painting, so the only extra charge is for tax, which I have no control over.
Please enjoy, and let me know what you think!
A big part of my art is done in Changing Seasons, And I am jazzed to say that this series is being displayed at the opening of Jonny B’s Tavern this week.
There will be fine food in a family oriented restaurant, as well as spirits at the bar.. The Renee family have been working for weeks to clean up, spruce up and prepare for opening, so please do plan on enjoying dinner or ,lunch out in Floyd soon, at Jonny B’s Tavern. It’s at the same site as the former Oakey Dokey/Hi Way Inn on Rte. 365. And my good luck happened after introducing myself a while ago, The new owners agreed to feature my Changing Seasons Series in reverse painting on glass . I will be changing out the paintings as each new season arrives in order to keep things interesting in the décor.continue reading
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.
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.
