Patterns from Real Life

The picture above was taken by my sister's family and has always defined her--her avatar if you will.  She has allowed me to try and translate it into a future glass piece.  I have drawn it out in Glass Eye 2000 below it.  Please note that the actual daisy will be done in the new GST lazy-susan bevel cluster but I drew it in for scale and color.  Most of the glass selected will be either Kokomo or Armstrong glass in wispy or opalescence.  The sky will be done in blue and white baroque for texture and contrast to the elements of the earth.  I can't wait to get started on it--I have been waiting for the chance to use Kokomo glass.
