|Train Wreck at Montparnasse in 1985|
|The Starting Point|
But I WILL get ahead of myself, won't I? Slow down Doug, and tell the story...one word at a time.
We began an attempt to create a beautiful stained glass door. I had an inspiration picture. I loved it. I still do!
|Forgive the Yellow Cast...My Dining Table is Yellow!|
Oh! So Wrong.
Wrong, Wrong, Wrong, Wrong, Wrong!
I carefully painted each pane of the window design, using the utmost care to get even and beautifully blended colors. This is what it looked like once it dried.
UGH!!! Shiver, Shiver....Eeeew! It looked HORRIBLE. Victor Horta IS now turning in his grave! Right?!!
OK...grow up Doug. The door is PERFECT. Exactly what I wanted.
It "SORT OF" achieves the effect I wanted in the dark....
So far, we have failed. But not to worry...we have another idea up our sleeve! My next try will be to use a product actually designed for Photography...a diffuser and color correction product made of polyurethane plastic and a layer of deeply dyed polyester. The colors are beautiful...and there are a myriad of colors.
Hope you enjoyed my learning curve! Under any circumstance, I must say that my fail was not QUITE as large as the Montparnesse accident...but it was close. :0)
I am hoping to show you a finished product soon that is as beautiful as the one I have in my dreams!
Until next time!
