Artist's inspiration:  I love dragonflies. In this painting the green and blue dragonflies are dancing a pas de deux in the cattails.  This original artwork in completely hand-painted in translucent paint that I make  myself. After the painting was completed, I backed it in silver leaf. The silver shines through and reflects the light beautifully.

Even in a very dark room, this artwork will capture whatever light there is and reflect it because of the silver on the back of the glass

What's Black and White and Stylin' all over?

This kitchen is! Gorgeous black and white kitchen with Linda Paul's dragonfly glass backsplash. Mixing cabinet colors and counter materials, gives this kitchen a contemporary country look with just a sousance of sophistication. The lower cabinets and hood are a pretty dark green that emulates the green in the painting. The framed glass painting was installed directly onto the wall, then tiled around with white subway brick shaped tiles.

Comment from customer who purchased and installed the dragonflies: The colors in the dragonflies are perfect. They catch the light beautifully and the whole painting illuminates when the sunlight hits it. Everyone that comes into my kitchen is drawn to it immediately! It looks like it was made to be there. Thank you so so much! Debbie Nelson, Kingwood Texas

This is how the artwork arrives. Let us know if you are planning a install it as a permanent fixture, then we will remove the hanging hardware so that you can apply adhesive to the entire back of this piece and adhere it to your wall. We include the removed hanging hardware in with your package, so if you change your mind and want to just hang it,  you can add it back into the frame by removing the bottom L-shaped brackets of the frame and slide the hanging hardware back into the grooved channel of the frame.

Linda's art glass is inspired by stained glass but is designed to be used as wall art.  The light, rather than coming through the glass as in a stained glass window, is captured and reflected by the silver, copper or gold on the back of the glass behind the transparent paint

2Installation and Hanging Options:

Option 1 Ready to hang removable backsplash: You can just hang the framed glass art piece directly on your wall as a removable backsplash. There is hanging wire attached to the back of the frame. Make sure that the hook you put in your wall is either in a stud or a expandable wall anchor. You can keep the piece from sliding around by putting removable adhesive putty on the back of the four corners.

Option 2 Permanent Installation of entire framed artwork. You can glue the frame and backing board to the wall using a Omni Grip White tile adhesive (available at Home Depot) or  two part epoxy.
The advantage of doing it this way rather than gluing the glass itself directly to the wall, is you may be able to remove it later without destroying the artwork, The frame would likely get damaged it when you pry it off, but the art itself could be salvaged if you are careful.  

Installation Tip: If you tile up to the bottom where you want the piece glued, the frame or glass artwork will have something to rest on as the adhesive sets. You can also temporarily screw a board to the wall for the piece to rest on as the glue dries, then remove the board after the glue has set and tile around it.

Cleaning Instructions: You can clean with Windex and a lint free cloth, spraying the Windex on the cloth rather that on the glass itself so that the cleaner does not puddle between the glass and the frame
