Before the holidays I mentioned that I had picked up a piece of glass as a gift at the Calyx art show. Now that the holidays are over and the gift has been given – I thought I’d share it here with you.
The glass serving tray (designed for crackers and cheese) was created by Fused Glass Artist Hellen Beamish.
Of course, at the top is the painting I bought by artist Joyce Boyer. I chatted with the artist at the Calyx show, where she told me that the background is sort of a water-colour effect using pastels (on a special paper, watered down with crushed chemical fluid…. which I also don’t remember!) and then regular pastels on top for the details. It’s gorgeous! I don’t actually have it hanging yet… but soon… soon…
