I've picked up one of my old techniques that I really enjoy; painting on glass. It's a very interesting medium to work with. Glass, (unlike canvas, paper, cardboard, fabric) has no grain or texture. So paint doesn't take to the glass very well. Although, it can be done. It's a challenge to work with, but the results are really amazing.

Using multiple layers of glass and paint, I can build up a whole world with foreground, backgrounds, and multiple grounds in between. It makes the two dimensional, into three dimensional.
