Painted glass backsplash advice needed
We are in the middle of a kitchen remodel of our mid-century ranch home. We have opened up the space between the kitchen, dining and living room. The total length of the room is 57 feet. There is a water view all along one side except for a 10' fireplace wall. The main backsplash wall will have a hood on it. We are thinking of running the backsplash all the way up the wall between the cabinets on the side. We are doing white cabinets and appliances, White Macaubas vein cut countertops, and DuChateau wide plank white oak flooring (antique white Vernal collection).
I really liked the simplicity of the one piece painted glass backsplash. Here is a sample of what I am talking about:

Has anyone done something like this? My contractor is planning on purchasing the non-tempered glass and painting it himself with some special paint from Sherwin-Williams. My concern is that it is not glass paint and that it is not tempered. He is going to use a paint that will adhere to anything. Should I be okay with this? Also, with the non-tempered glass? The backsplash will be on two walls, one is behind an induction cooktop though, the other just between upper and lower cabinets.
We plan to have a pretty neutral paint color on the walls and then a medium blue painted glass back splash in Pratt & Lambert Pale Cadet color. The color can be seen in this photo. I like it because the colors of the kitchen will be very similar, except for the black vent hood:

Any strong objections, thoughts? Here is a photo of the room. The main backsplash will be on the far wall. I think we need something a little bright and blue would tie into the water view. It also goes well with the Macaubas quartzite.
