This blog shows some new techniques and many photos of a recent collaboration and commission for a client here in New York. 

NO SURPRISES: 2 glass samples. A portion of the work I showed the clients for approval.

Past students may remember a demonstration in class where I used oil paints on stained glass. This "The Granier" commission, French for the Baker, was a perfect project to demonstrate this technique. My steps included:
- Meeting the clients to see the location for the art to be hung and observe the colors of the room
- Reviewing possible themes, schedule and price
- Presenting small digital sketches
- Choice and revisions on digital sketch
- Presenting a full-size color paper printout of the design in different sizes to choose which looked best in the room.
- Presenting a glass sample (see image above)
- Drop off and hang final work

Images of the final work:
