Last time, I was browsing the web and saw some beautiful glass painting designs. I never thought I’ll be hooked in this stuff since I am not an artsy person. But upon browsing more, I saw even more patterns and designs of glass painting that really capture my picky eyes (yeah picky, LOL). I was amazed how those artists put their heart into their artwork and express themselves through glass and paint. I even wondered if I can make some too, even those simple ones.
Let’s say I’m not an artist but I am a very appreciative person. I appreciate even little things, especially those ones that capture my interest. And since my latest finds are glass painting, I thought of setting up a post about glass painting images and pictures. Well, why not? So here it goes…

Simple Glass Painting Designs
Some of you may probably have seen a lot of different glass art designs with intricate patterns, involving complicated designs and colors. At first, my tendency was to back off and push the idea of painting my very first art on a glass.
But there’s no need to fret actually. There are simple designs and patterns of glass painting that a beginner, with not-so-much experience, can try. Even kids can start explore their creativity with these.
Above image is one great example. You see? With such simple design here, some few lines there and combination of colors, it create a wonderful design in a wine glass. It doesn’t just about the complexity of the design, it’s about putting your heart on it.
This one may look a little bit complicated for you. Well, I honestly find it difficult. But the secret here is the use of the right patter for the glass painting. And of course, the use of the right paint color.

Glass Painting Designs of Flowers
I think flowers are one of the most common designs for every art, especially on painting. While most people may go for abstract designs, people (like me) may start with flower designs.
One of the good advantage of using flower as your basic design is that it doesn’t contain much intricate patterns and color combination. Also, it’s quite obvious that floral design can be used everywhere and for anything, be it for glass, bottle, plate, door or window.
For home decor enthusiasts, glass art painting works best as well. See that above image of glass painting on a glass?It spices up the simple transparent object and turn it into something delicate and one-of-a-kind home ornament. On the side note, I love that color combination.

Same goes with the windows… Just as I mentioned earlier, glass painting works well with home decorating and improvements. You can have a special window with the use of stained glass art. No need to be extravagant. Floral and abstract designs works best just like with the above photo.
Not just with your everyday glass and windows, glass painting designs also fit for your glass candle holders. Just like with the above picture. I love how the small image of a flower can bring great impact to the overall appearance of the candle holder, turning it to a simple yet stunning piece of art.

Sunflower is one of my favorite flowers. I love its vibrant yellow and brown colors. That what makes it the best design for any art and painting. In above photo, the artist paint the image of sunflowers to a wine glass. It seems like he/she transferred the “soul” of the flowers from the real one to the wine glass. I simply love it!

But I do love looking at abstract arts. Here are some of the abstract glass painting that capture my non-artsy eye.
