Some Seem to Smile

Note: this blog posted on March 9, 2011 despite the glitch in the header.

Flowers have an expression of countenance as much as men and animals. Some seem to smile; some have a sad expression; some are pensive and diffident; others again are plain, honest and upright, like the broad-faced sunflower and the hollyhock. - Henry Ward Beecher

Here is a piece that I started Saturday. I think it's about finished, although sometimes I have trouble knowing when to quit.

The glass bloom is tack fused and is about the size of a dinner plate. I mounted it on a background created on 16x20 wood panel.


  1. Leisa! THIS is beautiful! I love everything else you've done, you know... but THIS is amazing! You hit it with a great combination -- a delicious look you want to see again and again. Can't wait until Sam sees it! = )

  2. Someone once said, It takes two to make a work of art. One: the artist, Two: the one to tell the artist when to quit! (Something about hitting them over the head.)

  3. Thank you Chester! You make me want to keep on working : )
    And Anon, I rely on my husband to hit me over the head...metaphorically speaking...of course.

  4. Leisa,
    This Is beautiful! I think it would be perfect on my chocolate walls. Don't you think? ;-)

  5. Thanks Rozzy! Perfect with chocolate : )
