Eve Goes "Pro" with Gallery Glass

One of the most gratifying services that our blog provides--is the showcase for the talents of our readers. Eve had been following us for a while and I was pleasantly surprised to get this email yesterday.

"I was looking at some of the submissions that others have shared with your Gallery Glass website. I thought I would share with you what I consider to be my very first "professional" Gallery Glass job. This kitchen window is in 1,000+ high-end penthouses; a community known as 'The Meridian" (which is nestled just behind Las Vegas Blvd. and the MGM Grand Hotel & Casino.)
In each of The Meridian suites these windows are 21:x27" and they are not only unattractive, but also fail to provide enough privacy for their tenants from the people who walk by. I also attached an image which is an example of a modular window cling technique. I called it 'Ladies In Conversations'." 

What a beautiful piece!I love to share the directions that inspiration takes our wonderful Gallery Glass artists. This panel is somewhat contemporary in feel, but the clothing is reminiscent of Victorian styles. It certainly appeals to a large segment of our Gallery Glass enthusiasts. I appreciate how the portrait style subjects are layered into the colorful background. The shading of the clothing helps to define the figures. The faces show expression by their angle and placement, without the presence of leaded features--a good trick that's not easy to achieve.
Great job, Eve. Thank you for sharing your work. We would love to see other projects as you continue to develop your talent.
