Chinese character in stain glass
Hi friends hows life ! today i wana share a stain glass painting with you all that i made some 8 years ago this is the first painting i have ever tried in glass painting and also the first painting i did after my marriage, my awsome mother inlaw was alive back then and she liked it alot ,mind you friends she was a great crafter her self excelent in stiching and knitting and really good in oil painting and wood crafting some day i will show you her creations ,a really nice person but its so sad that you loose great people like her so soon she died just after 1 and half year of my marriage! one of the reasons this painting is really dear to me is that it has so many memories related to her .
I saw this character on a miniature wooden decoration screen that belonged to my mother in law. I drew and enlarged the image free hand on a paper and then transferred it on the glass .
I have used crystalline blue and purple color in the dress where as milky white in her skirt,handkerchief and in her face.The painting is outlined with golden lead,in the beginning i wanted to frame this painting but hubby suggested that it would look much better unframed if you place it on a wooden holder and frankly now i am quite happy with the result and i just love the way it creates a shadow on the wall behind it :) .Oh totally forgot to tell you that the wooden holder its placed on is hand crafted by my mother in law :) amazing isn't it ! yup she sure was a talented lady and this painting has so many memories related to her may her soul is blessed in heaven Amin .
