I came back from Switzerland inspired by the landscapes and the gardens. I was also inspired to work with glass again. I have been on a bit of a glass sabbatical since we started Roadhouse Arts. Just not enough hours in the day! So, full of inspiration and a newly installed sink in the studio, what happens? My kiln goes poof. A new relay and a transformer and it will be good as new. Bummer.
In the meantime, I got out my paints and painted this painting inspired by the tulip beds bordering Lake Zurich (see the inspiration photo in the previous post). I love the riot of colors. I see more tulips in my future!
