I was looking through some pics and I found this one of me painting glassware at Raffaele's restaurant a few years back, thought it would be fun to share;
I would sit at the front of the restaurant and as the customers came in they would place their orders- I would have the items finished by the time they finished dinner. I did this with ornaments from time to time as well. I also helped out as needed...then had a nice chicken parm dinner after the restaurant closed.
I miss Raffaele's chicken parm...it was hands down the BEST.
In addition to live-painting ornaments at the restaurant, I used to do custom orders, mostly for just folks local to me. I found some additional pics of old ornament designs I created, kind of fun to look back on them;
...just a gal trying to get this art out of my soul to share with the world on a DAILY basis...no big deal...check out my ramblings!-JLG
