The Art of Sandra Busby...
Painter of Playful Light in Glass and Still Life

Friday, 22 January 2016


Following on from my last post, today I'm sharing the progress of my latest Glass Painting. 

Oils can be a slowwww process when painting in layers like this, but I think it is worth spending the time, not least to say that this painting, when it's done, will last longer than any of us... Oh, and it will age better too!

So, this was the next layer...

The 'Skanky Teenage Stage'

...And this is where it is right now...

Looking Better

...And there is still a way to go yet!

It's true that you need patience to work in this way, slowly building, layer by layer  *yyyaaaawn*. And there are times when I am so tempted by Acrylics as they dry so quickly!

Speaking of drying, here is a nifty little find I bought for less that £5.00! 
It's a dish rack and I am using it as a place to stand my paintings at their various stages as they dry...

A Nifty Gadget

...Better still, it usually sits under a net, which also prevents the dust from settling on the wet paint!

As you can see, there is another painting at it's very first stage sitting at the back. I'll be sharing more on that one soon, so watch this space!


  1. Bonjour chère Sandra,

    Je suis très heureuse de profiter de l'évolution de ta peinture. Elle est déjà magnifique. Effectivement, avec l'huile il faut être patient !... Ton système de séchage est une bonne idée.
    Merci pour le partage de tes photos.

    Gros bisous ♡

    1. Merci Martin! Je devenais impatient de voir la fin de celui-ci maintenant: 0)
      Gros bisous xx

  2. If already looks incredible. I can see how the different glazes work to create that wonderful like in the reflection and the glass. Your dish rack is really clever-I Love finding new uses for things like that!

    1. Yes it's proving to be very handy! I'm getting impatient to get this one done now so I can concentrate on the next! :0)

  3. Hi Sandra,
    It is worth the time - the depth you achieve is beautiful! I love your comment that the paintings will age better than we will :)
