I finished and framed the custom piece with the two stellar jays for my client. The glass is 9 x 15" and the frame is 12 x 18" painted black as requested.
I am very happy with how this came out. And this was the first piece completed in my new studio. It all fired perfectly, so I am a happy camper. My client was given a choice of a summer/spring color way with greens and yellows or fall with reds and golds. Fall worked for her, so fall it was. Red and blue is one of my favorite color combos for some reason, so this works for me. It was fun to mix all of the leaves up and have the colors blend to create this forest scene.
I have started two more pieces with a new glass framing technique. I am still working out how I am going to accomplish what is in my mind, so wish me luck!
