Commission Arched Window

This is a companion window to the arched one that I put on the blog on 7/20/08. The two windows are the same size and both are on the front of the home. This one is designed for the man's office window so I used more yucca and cactus. The pair of quail is in the foreground and there is a small Texas horney toad in the bottom right hand corner. He is camoflaged to hide from the quail. Lighting today is overcast so there is not the direct light needed to show colors.

"Sunflower Field" and "Sunflower Vase"

New sunflower pieces that will be shown at Artisans of Rocky Hill Gallery in Fredericksburg, Texas. The "Fields" piece measures approx. 11" x 14" and is multi layer. One photo of it is taken with a beige fabric behind it. As with most of my pieces - the image is actually multi layer and transparent and is meant to be displayed with light coming through it. The surface of the vase is very dimensional!

Additional "minis" & another "Lazy Man's Aquarium"

A few more minis and one more aquarium. The Aquarium piece measures approximately 11" x 14". The rest are much smaller.

A Few New "minis"

Here are a few of the newest minis that I have completed. The largest is about 5" x 7". They are made using vintage rhinestones, mosaic tiles, polished gem stones, micro beads, seed beads, glass globs, glass enamels, etc. Each have several layers.
