Reverse Painted Chandelier for Lake Tahoe Art Scene

Hand Painted Glass Chandeliers can be purchased from the artist, Jenny Floravita

Tropical flowers are perhaps an unlikely subject for a home in Lake Tahoe but that is exactly what two of my clients wanted. This particular chandelier was inspired by a smaller piece that I had created and sold last winter. And since this client already owned one of my painted chandeliers, we decided to tailor this piece to have some colors that matched.

Birds of paradise, peacock feathers and iris flowers were a few of the requests. I followed the background color of the original piece that this painted chandelier was inspired by and that helped to keep the same "look and feel" that the client had seen in the inspirational piece. Of course, the end result had differences. The sheer size of this chandelier allowed for more room to paint flowers and the choice of some of the flowers made this piece different from the one that had inspired it.

Both the client and I were very happy with the end result.
