About the Design

comments from the designer:

I thought I would take a more abstract approach to Dale Chihuly's glass work and maybe something that Amy could relate to as a painter.

Thank you Lori :-) Before I was a designer I was actually a painter so this piece was extra fun for me to create!

This does feel like a piece of art, and I absolutely love it for that!

Joy on Nov 26, 2008 at 11:01pm

Love, love, love it! You used the brides colors, then took it up a notch with a unique but very tasteful splash of bold.

Joy on Nov 26, 2008 at 11:02pm

I would buy this one in a heartbeat ... best of luck!

I think that the 'painting' part is a great idea but I feel like the type is almost distracting. I think a more simple or even smaller type treatment might take less away from the painting and really make this design a lot stronger as a whole.

Thanks so much for your encouragement Patrick & Joy, I really appreciate your enthusiasm! Andrea, thanks so much for the advice on the type treatment. I will definitely work with it a bit and see if I can come up with something that will flow better with the piece. Thanks guys!

More yummy painting, hurray! Now just change the type to bold sans serif, or at most mix of bold and light, and arrange it to pull an element out of the image. It's okay to layer the type on top of the image.

Thanks for your input Laura and Jana. Maybe I'll try your suggestions in the future if I do a similar project, Jana. Thanks!
