Abe Lincoln

“You cannot help the poor by destroying the rich...strengthen the weak by weakening the strong...bring about prosperity by discouraging thrift...lift the wage earner up by pulling the wage payer character and courage by taking away people’s initiative and people permanently by doing for them, what they could and should do for themselves." -Abraham Lincoln

Dirtroad Team - Glass Paradox and Winoart

This week I happy to show you to artist that both paint on glass.  Each has their own style, but they are both amazing artist.  The first shop is Glass Paradox, from Maine.  Amy is the artist who has painted for 20 years.  Taking her first class at the Worcester Art Museum and they studying art history in college.  Her business like many of ours started at the kitchen table, now she paints in a studio.  Her amazing work not only can be found on Etsy, but in galleries, boutiques and small shops across the USA.  Amy does paint the enter pieces of glass. The next glass artist comes from California. Jennifer learned that she love to draw at the age of 10 while visiting her grandparents in South Dakota. It was her grandfather who gave her a book on horses that gave her start on drawing horses. In high school she would draw cars and motor cross riders. You will find her work painted on glass coffee mugs, beer mugs and wine glasses. Beside painting Jennifer does pencil, ink and charcoal drawings, but her love is painting on glass.
