Paris In Springtime

A few years ago, I was hired to paint a window for a little girls' room. This is what I did...
 My client called a couple of weeks ago and told me they were changing her daughters' room and wanted another window.
 Her daughter loved the Eiffel Tower that I had painted on the window and wanted to incorporate it into the new window.
Here is the new bedding that she wanted me to use as inspiration...
I painted the Eiffel Tower as if it were in the background with flowers bursting into bloom in the foreground...

 The colors actually matched perfectly but don't appear so in the photos...
My client loved it and I had a lot of fun doing it!

  1. That is beautiful. If it's not a rude question, what kind of inks do you use for painting onto glass?

  6. Just beautiful! I too am wondering what kind of paint you use if you don't mind telling. I have a few windows I'd like to paint on and was going to do a little research on my different options. The fact that the flowers are in front of the tower is just fantastic -- what a lucky little girl to have this in her room!
