Grapevine Vase

One of my recent creations - a square vase with a purple grapevine motif. Simple and minimal in decoration as it meant to be. Fine! Now, that I've finished it, I feel like revamping it a bit LOL Maybe with some more grape vine leaves on the side walls? What do you reckon? As you can see, sometimes my visions for the painted glass are very prone to fluctuating...
So, does that happen to you too? That feeling to change something once you've just finished creating it? Well, it's not all said and done for me, as I still can add some new painting to the existing one ;)


Some details of the painting...


This week has been moderately busy for me. Spent the last days of it preparing for another summer fair - Offa's Festival in Wrexham. This one turned out to be a little more successful than the disappointing one from 2 weeks ago as more people at the event equals more potential customers. It also seemed like my Houses of Love and the Seahorses were the most eye-catching and intriguing motifs of all. (Should I paint some more of them then?) The weather was fab today! Also the location was pretty good. The other craft stalls were interesting and it was great to see so much variety of crafts. Made friends with some new crafters and enjoyed my selling time today!

Oh! And last but not least, thank you Anna of Puppy Fly Boutique blog for your lovely blog award x x x Pleasure to receive this one! :)

  1. I think your glass is lovely as it is but I know what you mean about wanting to amend something as soon as you have finished. I'm sur a psychologist would have a name for it

  5. I think the vase looks good as it is, to add more could alter the style, so I would leave well alone. funnily don't normally alter once made.

  6. Someone said it takes two people to make a piece of art: the artist and the person to hit the artist over the head when it's finished (meaning artists often don't know when to stop).

    It's lovely, leave it alone and start a new one!

  9. I like the glass too, but know what you mean about wanting to change something once it is finished... just never sure that my stuff is quite good enough.

  10. I too think it's lovely the way it is. Though I'm familiar with the feeling of wanting to keep working at something.

  11. It looks lovely but you could snake a few vine leaves round the sides too.... perhaps! I can see why your House of lOve motiefs are so popular definitely do more of them!

  12. I think the vase will look lovely with stems inside and the motif on the front. Could always add a drop of green food colour to the water to give a bit more background colour - might alter the colour of the flowers tho! Very stylish - lovely work.
