Family Portrait

This project was a Christmas gift from the client to her mother and needed to include her two daughters and her mother. After a few conversations about memories or favorite events that the client might like to have expressed in the design, she remembered something her mother had always wanted to do- have a family portrait done with each of them dressed in flowing drapery. There was also a favorite saying of her mom's that she remembered hearing when she was a girl, "I love you to the moon."

Her mother's favorite colors are warm and bright and it seemed that a family portrait should include all three generations and so the final design was set. The four of them, each dressed in flowing white robes like Greek muses, each carrying a sunflower, and a banner bearing the quote in gold lettering. I wanted the sunflowers to really stand out so I tack fused the elements giving them a dimensional quality. The lettering is done in liquid gold and fired at a high temperature for a brilliant finish. The facial details were based upon many photos the client sent me of herself and her family and were also fired onto the glass for permanence.

The finished panel is a testament to strong bonds of this close-knit family.
