"Colorado Autumn Aspen" by Karla Nolan, framed painting on glass

ALERT: You are about to view art of a different nature. These are paintings on glass -- that is, painted directly onto glass with specially formulated glass paints. They are always framed for the protection of the glass. The paints often are transparent and sometimes opaque, giving a stained glass appearance under good light. They, like all fine art, should not be hung in direct sunlight. The photographs do not do them justice -- my colors are very vibrant. Close ups are available, just e-mail me for information (see below). In most instances, click on the actual image for an even larger image to view -- you'll see lots of different items such as marbelization, transparent or opaque parts of the work -- try it and see! Commissions are accepted.

 This painting finally finished drying — aspens are favorites here in Colorado but should really be left in their native environment — that is, up in the mountains where they spread via a complicated root system.  When planted even at mile high, the trees tend to get all sorts of diseases — just take the drive, folks, up to the higher altitudes and enjoy them there!  This particular painting is a real mix of both opaque and transparent glass paints — shimmering shades and already framed.  It measures 12"x9" edge to edge glass, will be framed in black, retails for $325 and if you live in the U.S., I’ll throw in the s/h charges!  Such a deal!  Write me at for more information or a Paypal invoice.

I have also set up a second website,, to showcase my paintings on glass.  There is a piece in progress as I type with sailboats.  That's a true challenge, showing proper structure and making the water look good.  Be sure to check it out, along with my new blogspot, listed below.

Thanks for looking!
