betty's backsplash -big pics as requested

I wanted to get a pic up of my window sides before I leave for Christmas. If I've already done this, I am very sorry! Getting the semester over etc etc has fried my brain, plus one of runners for the pull out trays in my new custom cabinets collapsed about an hour ago and broke my late mother's favorite large cut crystal fan vase. So I'm a little shaky. doing this to calm down. On the upside, I successfully used my roller nippers to cut two very thin porcelain cups in half, and cut the main design out of the center of one of the broken bowls from her wedding china, so thanks y'all for that new skill.

Anyway - here the sides are laid out ready to thinset (so this is the backside)

This is the west side, before final cleaning.

This is the east side, which went up like a dream

And the newly remodeled kitchen in general, which I still can't believe is mine, especially having grown up in this house, it looks so familiar but so totally different. The now broken vase is on the top shelf of the glass front cabinet. Wish I'd left it there.

Very nice backsplash, sorry to hear about the breakage, how frustrating for you.
Your new kitchen looks gorgeous, I really like the tall glass cabinet, and the light fixture is great too. You look like you have a stack of art work ready to go up, did you paint them all?I'd love to see pics of them if so, they look great.

What a warm welcoming look! I love what you've done with the window! Gorgeous colors... and that wonderful flow of darker to lighter at the top. Love it!

Aw thanks (blush). The tiles don't have any yellow in them, (ah computer monitors and phone cameras) but fade from light avacado to white and aqua/turquoise.

And the stacked paintings? They probably aren't going on the wall, they are the remnants of a 2-person show I'd just taken down and hauled home. They are the ones that have been shown twice but not sold, so are in line for....adjustments....(unless I still love them). The rose one above it is also one of mine, but a totally mushy sentimental thing like what I don't exhibit for sale, just do for myself, if that makes sense.

I have a website for my paintings & woodcuts, but don't want to violate any "business owner" things here.

Re your page, I see you're a multi-talented artist. This explains the successful blending technique. VERY nice work, BETTY.
