This is a project i did while renting space and attending classes at the Washington glass school, 2011-12. Really enjoyed my time with this group. I designed this three sided, welded and forged triangular frame to hold illustrated glass panels. This process of kiln formed glass is my favorite technique I learned at WGS.

The Courtship

This painting was inspired by the poem "The Nymph's Reply to the Shepherd" by Sir Walter Raleigh in which a shepherd tries but fails to win the heart of a nymph. She ends the poem by saying she cannot be moved to love him no matter what he promises. Poor shepherd… I thought he needed a top hat for some reason. Acrylic on canvas, 45"x20", custom frame.
