Sometimes the word "Talented" isn't big enough

Marble Trio by Jeff Hayes 2x2.5 inches
You read right - I did say 2x2.5 inches. I can't even sign my name in a space that small.

Knife, Wineglass and Peeled Lemon by Jeff Hayes is another true wonder that the mere word "talent" doesn't begin to describe.

The rendering of the glass with its etched design and the masterful highlights is pure poetry. The reflections, the gosh, how does he do it?

And because I have no shame I have posted below my first attempt at painting glass as inspired by daily viewing Jeff's blog. Now, do yourself a favor and click on his name to enter his blog for a real feast for the eyes.

By way of an apology...

Dear friends - Sorry, still no painting to post. I went back to work on July 1st and at the same time they changed some of my medicine so I have had a hard time doing much of anything. I promise, I'll get back to work soon but until then I thought I'd post the best 6 minutes of YouTube I've seen in a long time.

After all - they say laughter is good medicine.
