Republic of Newfoundland and Inukshuks

This morning I had a dentist appointment in Gander.  My mom tagged along and we met sister Brenda for lunch.  It was nice....we made the best of a crappy weather day.

Oh the rain --- it is driving me nuts.  Not much other than that to complain seems to be the main topic of conversation everywhere!!

So, to try and brighten things up a little, I'll show you a photo of some new glass painting designs I've done over the past few rainy days.

I painted my interpretation of the Republic of Newfoundland flag on four wine glasses. I also tried my hand at painting an Inukshuk on some beer mugs.   I have always been intrigued by the Inukshuk.  Here are some images that I found on the web, and used to paint my interpretation on the glasses.......... are my finished products.

I did a couple "Little Black dress" glasses too.  I can't seem to keep those around at all.  This weekend I gave one to my sister's good friend for her 50th birthday.  I also painted two "Mommy's Sippy Cup" glasses.  One of those is for a friend who just a had a baby and also happens to love red wine.  It'll probably be quite awhile before she drinks any wine, as she is breast-feeding, but I think she'll get a good kick out of it.  I'm sure it won't take me long to find someone to give the second one to!!
