Garden Ornaments

 Here are four new garden ornaments that will be shown at Artisans in Fredericksburg, Texas.


Oak Commission Window

This commission piece is very similar to a window that I recently completed.  When the customer came back to get it - it was gone.  I wanted to show these photos because it is sometimes difficult to explain the multiple layers on my pieces.  Here the mosaic border and some groupings of the leaves are on the front clear layer of glass.  The tree trunk and much of the leaves are actually on another clear layer of glass that is recessed about a third of an inch behind the front surface.  I loved how the tree cast such a distinct shadow!

Tribute to Texas

 This window is 24"x36" and is framed in redwood.  It will be shown at Atrisans in Fredericksburg, Texas.  The center circle represents the Texas flag, the upper circle features the Mockingbird which is our state bird, and the bottom circle is Bluebonnets and Indian Paintbrush wildflowers.  The corners feature "The Yellow Rose of Texas".
