Every once in a while you stumble upon a lady that has taken a talent and created something like no other! I met Brenda, AKA ATouchOfGlass, on the HandmadeArtistsForum a while back and couldn't believe what she is able to do with glass and paint...so much so that I am the very proud owner of one of her ladies.
What is so special about Brenda's work? Well, many people work with fused glass and many people can paint...but how many are able to combine the two and create a fantasy world of ladies with individual personalities?
I love to check out her newest pieces and try to see the story...of course, mine might not match what she had in mind when she was created, but isn't personal interpretation half the fun of art? These are a bit different in that they are digital prints of her original work attached to a domino pendant...not just any domino, but a hand painted one!
As if her painted ladies weren't enough, Brenda has started a new line which she calls Snooks which stands for Sweet Novel Original One of a Kind Sensations! These adorable pieces combine her painted faces with found pieces resulting in glittery one of a kind pieces of wearable art!
Ready to check out more of Brenda's work for yourself? Of course you are...and I dare you not to oooh and ahhh when you are scrolling through the sites! You can find ATouchOfGlass on Etsy, ArtFire, and on the HandmadeArtistsShop! You can read more about the artist behind this amazing work on her Blog as well as check out some of the other handmade artists that she has so generously supported.
Well, why are still here? Go! Check out these beautiful ladies and create your own story for them...by the way, it has been discusses many times that her fortune teller refuses to offer up lottery numbers. Maybe she was cooked a bit too long or maybe she just hasn't found the right person? Are you it? If she reveals her secret, can you please share it with me?
