KAREN SAMSON: Paintings & Fiber art
BOB SAMSON: Stained glass art
What better way to capture the brilliance of the indomitable Tucson sun
than by transmitting it through colored glass? Working with my wife Karen,
I "translate" her design patterns into stained glass art. We collaborate on the colors, and I do the crafting of the piece alone. We are currently intrigued with the idea of translating well known artists' renditions into stained glass. I call these my Artists' Works Revisited series.
Creating art has always been my passion. Living in the Southwest, I am heavily influenced by the local color, continuous sunshine, and the abundance of very talented fellow artists.
A lover of color, my paintings celebrate a "palette of all seasons." The whimsy of combining acrylic, inks, and various fibers add to the uniqueness of my creations.
