A Million Little Things

I have just completed a very intricate artwork with cut outs of my pen and ink sketches. It was a first for me, and I thoroughly enjoyed it! I cut our countless little pieces of my “Postcards from Paris” series of drawings, and then pasted them on foamboard to get some depth. To finish it off I framed it with Museum glass (Artlass), and I have to say WOW! It looks as if it doesn’t have glass in front, and you just want to keep touching it!

I have been playing with the idea in my head about the moments our lives are made up of, and it struck me that it isn’t the big occurrences, but a million little things that we experience, have, or do, that determines the quality of our lives. Everything – how small it may seem at the time – is interconnected and sets us on a specific course in our lives. Even the smallest act of kindness can have a vast rippling effect on us and the people around us. As one person, we might seem insignificant, but through a million little things, we can accomplish great things.

I often get asked what Museum Glass (or Art glass) is, since that is the only glass I frame my new artworks with. Truth is, despite the enormous price difference between normal glass and Artglass, once you have used it, you simple can not ever use normal glass again. It takes away almost all of the reflections you usually see in framed works.

It draws you into the artwork, and removes the barrier between you and the art. It feels like you can just touch it, with no glass as a hinderance. So before you ask why it is so much more expensive, treat yourself and come see the difference for yourself!

“Artglass reveals true colours and texture of the art. Thanks to its anti-reflective coating, which reduces unwanted reflections to less than 1%, nothing will prevent one from viewing the actual content of the framed item.

Our proprietary top coating makes it scratch-resistant and easy for processing and everyday use.” Left: Artglass. Right: Normal Glass
