this is how it happened....
it was a gift of luck, to have found this couple, through ads, that were selling their history of art, through mosaic.
I had taken that one drawing that you said to frame, with me..
the woman told me that even though I didn't have a long time with a background in mosaic, it was the design that came through and that I could use that, to develop any piece in stained glass.
having that lady and her husband actually come up with the idea that I can have access to the remaining supplies, as funds are available to me, is something only a conventional loan could provide me.
wow, and they're going to keep it stored, for when I can make a trip to their place...about a 45 minute drive, in the country..a distance I would take, just to go to the beach, to gather sea glass and shells anyway.
using the pen and ink, for the base
working with colors, to develop a plan
and with the glass, now I can go beyond a 9"x11" piece of paper.
I know it's going to be rather raw in the beginning, without being able to cut curves like I'd like but still, I'll have a guide, with the drawings.
I'm gathering reds and blues for this one drawing I did in class on Wednesday...
it started out as they all do...just a drawing and by the time 2 and a half hours had passed...here it is....
I just can't decide which of 4 ways to hang it, once done :)
