I have dabbled for a few years now painting roses. No expert, no formal training.. I just enjoy painting the roses. My friend seen some of my work on a glass ceramic tureen and a table I had painted on. She asked me would I paint roses on her glass plates for her upcoming Wedding Vow Ceremony in Jan. I must say I was honored that she would ask me and yet intimidated. I had never painted on clear glass before nor have I reverse painted. So I Googled painting on glass plates. Mostly I seen less than wonderful work. Mostly snowmen, and Christmas items. A lot of painting on wine glasses. I was a bit worried. After practicing on some plates I bought at the thrift store. I said yes, I will do it. Although, I still wasn't certain about the job. Since then I have managed to squeeze out 32 10" plates.. With about 28 to go.. This job couldn't have come at a better time. As of recently June 10th I lost my brother (James E. Staley) to heart disease. It was devastating as all family loss is. I needed this project to make it through. I paint these roses from my heart to help me heal from my loss..
