Thanks to "Wetoilpaint"

Maryanna, thanks for the advice on glass shops. I found one near my office ("We Fix Your Panes") that cut glass to size quickly and for a reasonable price.  I brought it home tonight, and it's a thing of beauty. It brings a tear to my eye. ;-)  It's much thicker than I expected, although that's one thing they didn't ask me on the phone when I ordered it.  I had painted my plexiglass palette gray on the back, but I think I'll hold off on that for this. It's too pretty. But I can't wait to smear paint all over it this weekend!

  1. It is real pretty glass!
    Another tip, use sheets of paper underneath your glass to tone your palette, easy to change colors that way, say for example you just might one day want a value 5 red rather than mid-tone gray.
    Can't find the right color?
    Paint the paper yourself.
    Congratulations, I'm happy your happy! ;)

    Scientific reason:
    The contast makes me happy. And when I'm happy, I paint better. lol...
