Winter Berries - Candleholder

Another piece of my recent glass art. One of my favourite motifs - floral pattern (ivy? holly bush? never managed to solve this question) with some red berries. This time I painted it all in warm colours - gold, red and orange. Pretty pleased with the final result. What d'ya think, huh? :)





I think this one would look nice with some golden sand / granules and a candle right in the centre :)
This is not the first time I've painted this motif. About 2 years ago I painted this version - green, gold and red.



Both candleholders became Christmas gifts. The next one I paint will be for me! :)

  11. Very nice work - love both colour options. I really like the shape of the glass too - they are great but I bet it caused a few headaches whilst painting them!

  12. They're really lovely, I'd be hard pressed to pick a favourite. I love the gold edging. I'm sure they were well received from their new owners.

  16. Love the all red version the best. slowly getting round all the blogs that blogger wouldn't let me leave comments on before. Hope it is sorted now. I have painted on glass and always used black or grey as the liner but seeing this effect it looks really stunning against the red. Hugs Mrs A.
