All the Pretty Colors

These are the bright, cheerful paintings by Natalya Bondarenko, sold in her Etsy shop NBHandicraft. Bondarenko paints the images directly on glass using glass enamel paints. I can remember exploring the medium a bit in the eighties, and really enjoying it (though I remember the fumes being a bit much). But of course, I never got anywhere as good as this talented artist.

Like many of the artists I find on Etsy, Bondarenko started by playing with the art form for fun. Then, pleased with her results, she displayed some of her work in her own home. Friends started asking to buy her pieces, and eventually she was able to quit her job to make this wonderful art full time. Lucky, talented girl!

  1. I love the birds painted into the salvaged window frame and the spiral fossil (ammonite?) She paints so skillfully that these could almost pass as stained glass.
