Glass painting, Stained glass painting in USA and Stained Glass painting in India are different from each other. First time I attempted to do Glass painting is when I was 13 years old. So I always thought I know what Glass painting is. I did not learn it professionally though just by looking at someone do it. But when I came to USA, it had whole another definition. Below are my pics of stained glass painting (that I knew from India). I had a digital weight scale which is not turning on after resetting, putting new batteries or restart. So I ended up using it for my painting. I always thought I did one glass painting when I was 15 for my house(will post photo once I have it), but last time I visit my Jiju’s place I started recollecting that I had done quiet a few. I was amazed to see how carefully and beautifully they were decorated in my jiju’s house. I felt so special. Anything I make, I used to gift him. Be it stained glass painting, canvas or ceramic. He has it all from me and best part is he has kept it like souvenirs in his house. He was the first brother in law in the family and only one until I got married (like 13 years later). No wonder why all of cousins loved him more than our own sister, because he used to take care of us like his own kids. We used to order him to do things for us or buy new gifts or take us to restaurants, movies,etc. And he had not left a chance to spoil us kiddos. Those were the day! below are the pics
Back in India, I used to wait when kids playing cricket will break my glass window so I can make best out of waste glass. As I was one of the kid which will never ask anything that has anything to do with spending money. Glass painting colors are lot thinner than it is here. Its like water consistency in India which gives very nice transparent view. This post turned out to be dedicated to my favorite jiju more than my painting. I am sure he will be very happy reading this.
