Scene with Poppies
This is my 12″ diameter Scene With Poppies panel. There is a bit of a story behind the creation of this piece which I will share with you here. My dear sister, who has since passed away bought me a ” Tiffany Calendar ” as a present for Christmas. This featured various stunning stained glass panels, lampshades and scenes. Some of these were on a grand scale which got me thinking about what I could fit into a small panel. The calendar was after all quite small but the illustrations still looked stunning.
When using art glass you end up with lots of different pieces of odd glasses that you don’t want to dispose of. After a while, these start to mount up and take up space so this was a way of putting them to good use. A win, win for me if you like so I took up my pencil and started to sketch.
I have taken my inspiration from a scene on my calendar. I’m not sure how large the original window is but my small panel is 12 inches in diameter, a Tiny Tiffany if you like. I can’t include too much detail so I have concentrated on the shapes and kept them simple. What I have made sure to do is keep all the elements of a landscape picture.
