Artist's inspiration:  One of my greatest art inspirations has to be Monet. when I first saw the installation of his giant water lily paintings at the Musee de l'Orangerie in Paris I actually cried. I had seen the travelling ones in New York but the curved ones created especially  for the museum installation blew my mind. This painting is a more whimsical approach to capture the life and color of the garden at Giverny  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 and seal it. 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,

hang on your wall or behind your stove as a kitchen backsplash

You can also buy Monet's garden as a tile mural on ceramic tile

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

2 Installation 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
