This was a piece that was made with a good deal of love. I’d been experimenting with some reverse glass painting for use in a classroom and camp program environment – and I wanted to see how it felt to do a reverse glass painting with some features on the front of the glass as well. I have a bunch of these antique windows, and their size and heft is wonderful to handle.
The garlic in this painting is on the viewer’s side of the glass, and has a matt finish as a result – compared with the vampire approaching from the moonlit forest on the other side of the glass.
Bonus: The vampire’s skin and the moon are painted with glow-in-the-dark paint. The end result was wonderful, and I’m very glad that it was sold and went to a very good home!
