Amazing! Artists With A Special Touch
Brenda Miller - A Touch of Glass

Let's start right off with an image. This painting has so many rich elements...  color balance, emotion, great format, the wistful lady with the sad, sultry eyes...  it's a work of art ready to be displayed and enjoyed.  Now consider this...  this piece is a one by two INCH pendant!  Surprised?!?

Brenda Miller painstakingly hand paints each of her wonderful pieces on fused glass.  Each tiny work of art is signed and dated.  Here are some more samples of her delightful work:

This is an involved process.  Brenda writes, "...first I cut the glass, top and bottom, to the desired size and shape. It is then fused together which takes about 1 1/2 hours. Then it is allowed to cool. Then comes the fun part, painting. After the painting is completed it goes into the kiln again for about 3 more hours and allowed to completely cool again."

Brenda has two shops on the web - one on Etsy and another on Artfire.  She also has a delightful Flickr gallery, and a blog.  The title of this series is Artists With A Special Touch.  Brenda Miller fits this category perfectly!
