Minature Landscape

This is a small piece - only measures 10 1/2" square including the frame. It has dimensional trees and a dichroic moon. Something this size can be displayed in a window but it also is quite effective just displayed on a small stand like the type you might use to display a plate.

"Apple Pickin Time"

These first two photos show this piece without transmitted light - it is only lit from the front but that allows you to see much more of the dimensional quality.

This small piece incorporates two different types of dimension. The tree and the flowers are all quite dimensional and show well both with and without back lighting. Glass enamel details are also used. The size is 16"x20" and the frame is cedar.

Golden Tree Vase / Moonlit Tree Vase

These are just another version of my trees! These vases are small - just 5 or 6 inches tall. The trees go all the way around the outside of the vase so the image is multilevel when you view them. The trees are quite dimensional and both have metallic detail.

Golden Trees

Trees - trees - and more trees!!! I said I was hung up on trees. Sure hope other people love trees as much as I do. This newest piece is 16x20 inches and has a cedar frame. There is dimensional glass - much of the glass is clear although that is not always apparent in photos. There is some metallic gold in the trees too.

"Mighty Oak"

Here is another in my recent series of Oak trees. It measures 16 x 20 inches and has a cedar frame. The live oak is dimensional and another layer of glass was added with the shorter scrub oak in the foreground.

My Hummer

This new window features a beautiful little hummer! There is glass enamel details and also multiple layers of glass on the flowers. The frame is pine and measures 20"x 28". The one photo taken at an odd angle (actually ALL my photos seem to be taken at an odd angle!) shows how light coming through the image casts color and sparkle.

"Texas Sunset"

This is the newest sunset piece. It measures 24" by 36" and has a cedar frame. The background trees (Gamble Oak) are created using the glass shard technique and in addition very small glass glitter has been applied between the two layers of glass to hint at the sunset colors as the sun is receeding. The tree trunks are reverse painted with glass enamel.

"Standing Watch"

This is my first new piece in a month and I have really missed my glass! This measures 20 inches by 28 inches and has a pine frame rather than the cedar frames that I usually use. The tree is dimensional - made of glass shards. There are several different types of vintage jewels in this piece including some cornelian glass that creates the circle. I have also used glass seed beads to fill just a few of the seams rather than the usual grout. You may be able to see them in the detail photos.
