How does one get in the habit of blogging?

I have had a very busy summer of traveling and working... I think it is time to post a few pictures of what I've been up to! I've got to get better at keeping up on this!

This is a backsplash I did for some friends in their newly remodeled basement. Beautiful bar, isn't it?

Mom & Dad's House in the fall

I did this piece as a gift for my parents. It was done from a photograph that my mom had taken in the fall. I love the colors in this one and the abstractness. The branch and leaves just in front of the "camera" are so vivid and defined while the trees beyond the house are so much more like a George Seurat painting.

Brown Eyed Susans

This piece is for sale and measures 24" x 24". I just love the patch of brown eyed susans that we have in our garden in the back so I thought I should do a mosaic of them. The bright cornflower blue background is a perfect cloudless summer sky!


These elegant lilies are quite the statement on the stark white background. I love the way they dance across the "canvas".

Kitty Cat

This mosaic and the below post are re-creations of 6 yr old childrens art work! Isn't it so fun?

2 Little Penguins

Gosh, these penguins are so adorable! Someone asked me to re-create the work of her 6 yr old grandson into glass so that it would last forever. I just love the simplicity and bright colors.

Adirondack Lake

This Adirondack panoramic scene was a lot of fun to do. I had to search for just the right glass for the mountains, but I knew when I had found it. The mountains in upstate NY are so unique and green because of all the evergreens.

Starry Night!

I was totally overwhelmed when I was first asked to re-create Starry Night in glass. But as the project progressed it became very exciting. This mosaic has all the others beat for the number of pieces used for sure! It took a lot of patience with the tweezers helping me, but it was worth it!


I usually like to work in stained glass, but every once in a while I just get in the mood to paint. These are some fun fish paintings. The one of the red snapper with the blue background is for sale. It measures 12" x 24". The other one hangs on the wall in our living room. Love all that color!

Window Fun!

These pics are of an old window that I mosaiced on. The hammock on the beach is very inviting, isn't it? Depending on the light shining thru the window the picture takes on a totally different feel!


My latest project was doing the backsplash in our kitchen.
This was the before and after shot.
It was quite the project doing the countertop and sink. My husband and I learned a lot! The backsplash was the really fun part! I got to use my favorite colors and get the really modern look I wanted. The glass is so pretty and shiny... I love it!
