Sail Away with Me: A Mural

Happy Monday ~ I hope that everyone had a wonderful weekend.  Mine went by too darn fast, how about you? I did finally finish up a little mural that I’ve been working on for a few weeks.  I have several glass windows inside our home which are 3′ tall and 1′ wide. They each have an Iris stamped on them in gold…very 1980’s like. I honestly can’t stand them so decided to dig through my paint drawer to see what I had. 

I found some glass paints and glaze which I had bought on sale years and years ago, but never used.  PERFECT! It’s important to make sure that each layer of paint fully dries before you try to add more paint – I’m use to working with oil and acrylics which I can layer on and mix together, so it was a learning experience for me. Once the finishing glaze has completely set in a few weeks I’ll be able to wash them (so they say). I left a bit of the frosted glass showing as a border around the edges. So…what do you think???

We’re pleased with the finished painting!
The numbers represent our anniversary date April 28, 1983.
Added the evergreens in the background for a Pacific Northwest touch!
