wabi sabi waltz • acrylic on reclaimed window

This is the same completed piece shot 3 different ways:

mounted on the wall, outside with sunlight shining through it and lastly with fairy lites (which removably mounted) behind it.

pretty much every time i paint there are moments or strokes

where my paints, brushes and i trip over one another and stumble around a bit

laugh fests ensue

my paintings boss me around and always win

it’s a wonderful surrender

i tuck in for the ride and watch what happens

during this first venture on glass….the bumping/laughing/tripping and what in the worlds? never stopped!

i felt like a 3 year old set loose and i reckon it shows…

but oh! what a very fun wabi sabi waltz it was!!!

Thank You, Jo, for Your continued encouragement to paint on glass! I’m very excited about a round window hanging on glass that I’m UBER close to finishing! Posting soon! And while I’m thanking, THANK YOU ALL for Your amazingly loving, super kind and supportive presence here and for all the wonderful things You gift on Your sites!!! Loveliness abounds!!!

    1. You are so kind, Robert! Thank You!!!….my 2nd attempt actually does look like stained glass!!! Can’t wait to post it but I am having a heck of a time getting it sealed….it can hang in a window either way and there are many nooks and crannies to the frame I built. Learning a lot and having so much fun!!! Cheers!!! 🤗❤️😊

    1. Thank You!!! It truly IS fun! And man, if You have the space and a leaf blower….You could make crazy magic. I saw some LARGE art pieces on glass in Las Vegas. They looked to me to have been made by thinning out acrylic paint, pouring it and blowing it hither and yon with something VERY powerful like a leaf blower. They were wonderful! I started out trying that on this but my paint was too thick and my hairdryer laughable! But MAN! I’m about to post a second piece that I’m very excited to share. I’ve learned that by REALLY thinning out my paint layers like beautiful stained glass can be achieved, so the third piece I make will be much more of that. It’s such a fun journey! You’ll love playing with glass though!!! I can’t wait to see what You do if You decide to venture into it! Cheers and Bon Voyage!!! 😃❤️🤗

  1. These beautiful paintings evoke different emotions, Katy ❤️ I love them all and I love the third one best. It’s so deep and intense that it’s like a dramatic movie. So many characters, scenes and stories are hidden behind it…

  2. What an uplifting piece to read, and I LOVE your creation! The different setting/lighting really does give it such a varied look. I’d say my favourite is the second, where natural light is going through it. It feels bright and happy. The darker one with the backing against fairy lights, is my second favourite as it feels so warm and interesting! xx

    1. Oh wow!!! Thank You very much, Caz!!! Isn’t it crazy how varied it looks?!! I’m with You, I think…and will eventually move it to one of the upstairs windows as it is SO bright and happy in sunlight! Huge hugs!!! 🤗❤️😊

  3. Wow Katy, Happy Saturday! The colors are unbelievable. They are the colors of the earth and the colors of the sky. They are the colors of the heart and the colors of the poem. Magnificent post. Thank you for sharing. Love. Love. Love. 🌹🌹🌹🌹🌹🌹🌹🌹🌹🌹🌹🌹

            1. AH! LOVE this!!! Whenever I hear the word “tons” I think of it in measurements of elephants! So the visual that came is of two beautiful elephants joyfully smiling and sauntering my way! I take them, garland them with roses and huge hugs, and send them back to bless the rest of Your week!!! 😃❤️🙏🏼🐘💕!

  4. So it’s the same window in different stages of painting. The pic in the middle is the best. I mean I like the way the sun lights it. And if I look closely, I distinguish different shapes, like watching the shape of the clouds in the sky. Most definitely it gets one thinking. 🍀🌼💮💕

    1. Actually the same finished painting in 3 different kinds of lighting! One of my favorite things about art is how different the same piece looks throughout the day as the light finds it/dances around it/and leaves it. But glass! WOW! That’s a whole ‘nother wonderful ballpark! Looks CRAZY different in any light You place it in! I can’t wait to post the other piece I’ve done so far. It’s pretty rockin’! And You know, I’ve had a bunch of windows for years that I didn’t know what to do with….so THANK AGAIN, Jo!!! I already have a really cool idea for my next venture into windowdom! Sending huge hugs!!! 🤗❤️😊


      1. I’m glad you’re having fun. 💕 So you say it’s nothing different between the three images? Wow! Lightning changes everything. I think it’s cool to have painted windows. One has a different view in different moments of the day. When you feel confident enough, you should paint at least one window of your house. 🙂
